Blimey, why am I never THERE when there's excitement? I'd have been in the front row. I always have to listen to sirens, but never see the fire.....hope no one was seriously injured.

I live in a tower block, it's quiet scary really what damage can be done.

Albert Barnes House is right opposite my bedroom window, but I didn't hear or see a thing. I guess I should be happy I sleep so soundly.

I'm in MetroCentralHeights and was woken up by people screaming that there was a fire at around 1.40am... it was well under way as the fire engines were arriving. We watched as the flat above burst into flames... it really is so lucky that no-one was seriously hurt.
