Fire rips through historic pier
A major fire is wreaking havoc at the Grand Pier in Weston-super-Mare, a seaside town in the UK. The wooden structure dates from 1904, and the fire is sending a huge plume of smoke into the sky visable for miles around.
There are no reports of any injuries. The blaze is believed to have started in the west tower of the pier.
Send in any photos or video you have of the fire or smoke. It can reportedly be seen within a 10 mile radius.
Firefighters were called to a large blaze that swept through the historic pier at the Somerset seaside resort of Weston-super-Mare on Monday, police said.
Flames and thick black smoke engulfed the structure and could be seen from the M5 motorway, several miles from the coast, a fire brigade spokeswoman said.
Television footage showed much of the pier well alight, with smoke billowing high into the sky above the beach.
An Avon Fire and Rescue Service spokeswoman said there were no reports of any injuries.
