Sad and sorry for all those people who's had to leave their homes.
The building seemed quite bad by fire damage..in my opinion building should be made of brick and not PVC.

All the comments about this fire have been made on "general". The photo brings home how nasty a fire can be.

Buildings go up very quickly nowadays compared to when everything was bricks and mortar. I suppose it should follow that they come down just as quickly but it makes me wonder if modern techniques and materials are as good as the old ways.

Went to see this on Wednesday. So sad for the residents. Only the top floor damaged with fire, but the rest damaged through water. It is heartbreaking, there is still washing out on one balcony. Man working there said there are still plates on tables with half eaten meal.
