Not sure how well known this is now across the world, but yesterday there was a large fire at Gatecrasher One, formerly The Republic, Sheffield.

Cause of the fire is being treated as suspicious, but I'm not convinced about it being an insurance job, given that they could've sold the place for ten times what they'll get from the insurers.
Owners however have announced that it will be rebuilt
