Fire at the Liverpool Telescope

Yesterday there was a fire on the island of La Palma at the site of the Liverpool Telescope. After the fire which destroyed Mt. Stromlo Observatory in 2003, we were all a bit worried. Luckily, there isn't much vegetation near the telescopes so it hasn't caused too much of a problem. You can check that the telescope is still there on the webcam. There are lots of other telescopes on La Palma, but don't worry, none of them have been damaged either.
