From A Spark To A Flame

In the middle of the night I awoke to several bangs in quick succession. I remember being confused because it was the early hours of the morning and no-one would be letting off major fireworks at that time. Was it gunshots? Explosions?

The following morning a dark plume of smoke was blotting out part of the sky in the direction of Canning Town. Something had gone down, alright. There had been a big fire in a paper archive warehouse.

The above picture is taken from the following night, because it took two days for the fire to burn itself out.
