Carn Brea Fire

Last night, en route looking for the said Kindle Fire (I kid you not!), I left Pool (just outside Carn Brea) about 21:00.  I had even taken a photo of the iconic Geevor mine black against the setting sun.  Absolutely no hint of a flame then.  Travelled to Truro, managed to pick up said item, drove back a quarter of a mile from Chivvy roundabout, then saw the Carn on fire. This must have all happened within about 50 minutes.  I couldn't believe it. At 01:00 this morning, I could still see it on fire from my bathroom window and we are just over 10 miles away.

Doesn't appear to be any human fatalities, but I bet there were some wildlife casualties.  Sad.
