Mac's Big Blaze

Those of us who saw videos - or the reality - of yesterday's conflagration at Glasgow School of Art's world-renowned Mackintosh building were appalled at the potential loss of this iconic structure and its historic contents, as well as the threat to life of students inside. Today's good news is that no students were caught in the blaze and that Scottish Fire and Rescue Service estimates more then 90% of the structure is viable and that up to 70% of the contents have been protected. The course work of the School's students has also been saved (CLICK). Shown is a photo of the Mackintosh art nouveau Library before the fire.
Update: bad news the library was completely destroyed in the fire (CLICK).
