Cutty Sark fire

As an Englishman with a certain amount of interest in history, waking up this morning to hear the Cutty Sark was on fire was rather depressing. It's even more depressing to hear that it may have been started deliberately.

The Guardian reports that the chairman of Cutty Sark Enterprises has said the decks are "unsalvagable", but that 50% of the planking and all the historic artefacts were off-site, but most importantly that the ship will be restored. No word on the status of the iron frame yet.
