Lots of white smoke somewhere in the direction of E&C; anyone know where it is coming from?

It appears to originate from or near the one stop shop behind the Walworth Rd library.

Apparently it's the Cuming museum/Walworth Town Hall that's on fire. I can see the smoke from my kitchen - I hope the Strata residents have their windows closed!

hope everyone's ok. I love that building, the old council chamber was really nice. My great grandparents were married there in 1913.

Horrendous! All the top floors utterly gutted and round the corner into Wansey Street...

Heart breaking. One of the few listed buildings in Walworth. Just been down to look, I stink of smoke! Hope they have managed to save the archives.
