London's Cutty Sark On Fire
Updated: 05:38, Monday May 21, 2007 The preserved 19th-century ship the Cutty Sark is on fire, London Fire Brigade has confirmed.
It is said to be 100% alight and eight fire engines are at the scene in Greenwich, south-east London.
Greenwich town centre is closed to traffic and the Docklands Light Railway will also close because of a police cordon, Scotland Yard said.
The ship, one of the capital's best-loved tourist attractions, is currently closed to the public for extensive renovation work. It was due to reopen in 2009.
There are fears that gas cylinders that may be on board the ship because of the renovation work may explode.
London Fire Brigade said the Metropolitan Police received a call at 04:55am reporting an extensive fire on the 19th-century clipper.
I remember going there when I was in primary school.

When i went to the U.K in 2003 i went there-it was beautiful but i hear that the damage is not as bad as first thought-apparently half the ship was in storage-but i think it will be back but the cost will be very high-but it may be worth it
