More Damaged Caused by Fire

Glasgow City Council has confirmed that the buildings hit by a fire on Sauchiehall Street will be demolished.

A major blaze ripped through the block, which housed businesses including Victoria’s nightclub, on Thursday.

The council has now said the buildings are unsafe and will have to be pulled down by their owners.

The fire was one of the biggest faced by Scotland’s fire service since it was amalgamated nearly five years ago.

The fire took hold in the roof of the building at about 08:20 on Thursday.

At the height of the blaze, more than 120 firefighters and 20 fire engines were mobilised to the city centre.

The buildings at 92-96 and 98-106 Sauchiehall Street will now be demolished.
