MASSIVE Blaze Engulfs Glasgow Art School Mackintosh Building And The 02 ABC

A HUGE fire ripped through the Mackintosh building at Glasgow School of Art and spread to the O2 ABC music venue.

The blaze broke out around 11pm on Friday. 

Around 120 firefighters have been tackling the flames. They laid high-volume hose all the way to the Broomielaw to pump water from the Clyde.

The building was being restored following a severe blaze in 2014.

Just after 3am, the blaze spread to the O2 ABC nearby.
