    Default Fire at Old London Fire Station

    The old Barbican Fire Station in the City of London is being demolished to make way for a new High Rise....earlier this morning, the old 8 Storey Drill Tower, covered in scaffolding for demolition, caught fire... The job went to 6Pumps and an aerial...becuase of its location right in the heart of the Financial district...plenty of photos.

    WOW looks like quite the job. Glad to hear no injuries.
