Major fire at Glasgow School of Art

The Charles Rennie Mackintosh-designed Glasgow School of Art in Scotland was engulfed in flames today when a fire broke out at the architectural treasure which dates back to 1897. The blaze is thought to have begun at basement level and travelled up through all five floors. At the time of going to press, the flames were still being tackled by firefighters.

Many students and local residents took to social media site Twitter to post photographs of the Glasgow School of Art on fire and the institution also posted a notice on the site to announce that the building had been evacuated safely. The extent of the damage suffered by the building is as yet unknown.

The Reid Building, designed by Steven Holl Architects, was opened opposite the Mackintosh Building in April 2014.
