Breaking News: Fire In Soho

The Twittering types are tweeting that another fire is raging in Soho, this time at what looks to be the O Bar on Wardour Street. A video shows some pretty sizeable flames leaping from the building, though it's believed that the fire has now been brought under control. After the Dean Street fire last month, is it just a coincidence that one of the more technologically switched-on parts of the capital is again breaking this story? Perhaps it's all those iPhones and Blackberries being plugged in too long.

No one tweets about fires in less switched-on parts of London - there's a fire on the New Kent Rd. that's been burning since 1998, but no one is brave enough to get their phone out to take a picture...


It could be a Zen koan.... if a fire breaks out in Lewisham, does it make a sound?
