Glasgow Eyes Picture Special 

Glasgow’s world-renowned  School of Art has been destroyed by another massive blaze, four years after part of the famous building was gutted.

Flames ripped through the celebrated Mackintosh building after it caught fire at about 23.25 on Friday evening.

The blaze spread to other nearby buildings including Campus nightclub and O2 music venue, where both venues have extensive damage.

Glasgow Eyes was on the scene to capture the drama from Pitt street as Police Scotland sealed off all the streets, and our pictures show how the public got caught up as office buildings and clubs were evacuated as Glasgow went into a lockdown.

 

The renovated Mackintosh library had been due to reopen next year.
