From what I have read about it, no one died in the fire but I think there might be some injuries. It is truly a miracle that no one was killed. Let's all take a moment to remember the brave firefighters!
I saw a photo of them on the BBC and they were shown on the beach getting sea water to quench the flames!
Back in 2014, the magnificent pier in Eastbourne caught fire. One of the steel structures on the pier was lost but the wooden pier was saved. Thank God for firefighters!
Above is a photo of the steel building on the pier that was burned. Can you believe that they were able to save a wooden pier with such a fire that completely melted that steel?
You can see the size of the steel structure that I am speaking of in the above photo, it is to the far left of the picture.
(By the way, Richard took this photo and I think it is lovely. Even on a grey day, Richard can capture beauty.)
I have spoken of my love for natural beauty but I have also expressed my love for beautiful architecture. I mourn the loss of this building.

My friends, I have been visiting Eastbourne since the 80's. So, here is a huge hit song from 1985.
After all, everyone wants to rule the world, right?
