Fire Guts building in Newcastle City Centre

Last night I received a message that there was a huge fire in Newcastle City Centre (Cross Street, near the junction of Clayton Street and Westgate Road) which had been reported on the local news

I did hear a lot of emergency vehicles going past on the road outside last night and I was worried that the situation had escalated, but it now looks as if the situation is under control, possibly one person at risk, hopefully everyone involved will recover from this unfortunate event. It is thanks to those who raised the alarm early enough for the emergency services to be able to respond quickly, that more damage was not done. This area is more businesses and shops than housing, but lots of people do live nearby in Chinatown and various low rise housing schemes around the Inner West area and also many people do live
"above the shop" in Newcastle City Centre .
