Fire Guts University of Nottingham Science Building

Last night, a chemistry building under construction set alight on the University of Nottingham Campus, Metro UK reported.
No one was injured and the fire did not spread to any other buildings on the University Park campus which is located on the outskirts of Nottingham.

The building cost millions of pounds and was partially funded by a £12 million grant from pharmaceutical giant, GlaxoSmithKline.

The timber-framed building was expected to be completed next year.

Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue attended the scene and 60 fire-fighters were involved getting the fire under control.

According to the Fire service spokesperson the building was ‘about 70 per cent complete’ and the fire-fighters can only discover what caused the inferno once ‘the fire is entirely out.’

An open day for prospective students is expected go ahead today as planned according to the University’s registrar, Dr Paul Greatrix.
