Fire at Armley.

We live near to where the fire in Armley was.  The full story on the BBC is here.  We actually don't live that near but we heard the bangs in the middle of the night.  It sounded like metal shutters being hit very hard in the near distance.  The smoke was still rising twelve hours later and there was dust and ash all over.  The roads are still closed around the site and local rumour says that a gas main has fractured.  It seems odd, living so near to an incident that actually made the BBC website, and was on the main page at one point.  For me it is remarkable.  It isn't dangerous or scary or even that inconvenient, but it is something to remark on.

I got this picture from the BBC website.


I'm glad I don't live any nearer.
