An other delerict hotel goes up in flames

These photos were taken at 00:30 on Tuesday morning as an other of Torquay's long abandoned and delerict hotels burns down. The hotel was situated on Warren Rd where it overlooks Torbay so I would imagine it would have been visable from both Paignton and Brixham.The fire started at about 10:30 (22:30). A police officer I spoke to said he wasn't aware of any casualties though the hotel is surrounded by appartment blocks on both sides. I would imagine the road will be closed for traffic all night and a good portion of Tuesday day time. More photos some time around midday if the police let me get close enought.
PS Thanks Terry for letting me know.

The bus drivers do not look at all impressed. Never seen so many number 12's on Abbey Rd at any one time.

Was sat behind about 4 with several 32's for the queue stretching from Tor Church/Torhill Rd, back through Union St and Lymington Rd to the coach station.

Building was still smoking and clearly visible from Livermead at midday.

Day off for me, I think.
