Forgive me for putting this on WoWs. I think it should be seen by all those that don't have Exeter stories in their social media feeds.

I walked by there at 09:30 this morning and it looked like the fire in the art gallery had been contained. About an hour later I looked out of the window at work and there was a serious amount of smoke coming from up there. It only got worse for a couple of hours.

Still smoking now, but it's a lot less than earlier (albeit still a significant amount) and it appears to be white rather than black/grey. Hopefully that means they're on top of things.

Very sad. A beautiful part of the city.
