They've arrested someone so I assume they're not counting on it being accidental.

Hope everyone is found alive and well.

The latest ----------------------

"Fireworks factory 'met all safety checks'
A factory which was hit by a blaze met all safety requirements for the storage of fireworks, the local council has said.

SP Fireworks in Stafford had been registered to sell fireworks for the last four years during which there had been no safety issues, Staffordshire County Council said.

Trading standards inspected the premises on Tilcon Avenue last month and it met all safety requirements for the storage of fireworks.

A 53-year-old has been arrested in connection with the blaze, the cause of which is still being investigated. Two people remain unaccounted for while two men were taken to hospital."

i saw this on the news in london yesterday, a real shame and i hope anyone involved is ok.
On another note, i didn't know anyone was arrested, if this was arson then the person responsible needs to be thrown in prison and the judge needs to shove the key up his Sugar!
