Famed Glasgow art school ravaged by fire again

The fire spread quickly throughout the building complex appearing the consume all of

Glasgow has suffered a major blow as a second severe fire in four years has gutted the historic Glasgow School of Art, one of the Scottish city's most beloved cultural treasures.

The Scottish fire and rescue service said the call about the fire came in at 11.19pm.

Despite the scale of the blaze, no casualties have been reported.

SFRS Deputy Chief Officer Iain Bushell said the fire caused "extensive damage" and that containing the massive fire would be a "prolonged incident".

Meanwhile, poet and Scotland's former makar Liz Lochhead, who studied at the art school, said she was "feeling emotional" after learning about the fire.

The fire was first reported at about 20 minutes before midnight on Friday, when the city center was full of people enjoying a night out, including many School of Art students celebrating their graduation which took place earlier. "It is significantly damaged", Heath said.

Ben, an eyewitness, told the BBC the latest fire looked "much worse" than the previous one.

The UK government "stands ready to help, financially or otherwise", he added.

"This is a blaze, the building is just going up like a tinder-box".

One wrote: "Absolutely devastating ~my heart goes out to those students ~ just unbelievable to have happened again".

"The sad news that the Glasgow School of Art was ravaged once again, when it was finally recovering from the fire four years ago has shaken all of us and we would like to offer our full support to the Art School in these dark times".

Fire fighters attended the scene of a second fire at Glasgow's School of Art four years after part of the Charles Rennie Mackintosh designed building was destroyed by fire.

"The Mack has been undergoing restoration since the last devastating fire in 2014".

"Firefighters are now tackling the fire".

A statement from the owners said: "We can all feel their pain and this is the last thing Sauchiehall Street needs".

The building, known as lauded designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh's masterpiece, opened in 1909.

Initial inspections suggested that the grade A-listed art school, designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh and completed in 1909, has been gutted and its roof and upper floors nearly entirely destroyed by the blaze that took hold on Friday night.
