    Arrow Google on FIRE
    The blaze appeared to have started in a terrace on top of the office building on Buckingham Palace Road, which was closed off by emergency crews.

    Hundreds of Google staff and employees of other firms based in the building were evacuated.

    I just saw some video of it. The people on the roof had the choice of going for a fire extinguisher, buckets of water but they went for their phones to Twitter live about what was happening. #damngeeks
