Re: Fire at Cologne's Historical Archive.



Paul,
Thank you for sharing that note. Just for the record, there was no fire
here, just the seemingly entire fire dept responding to salvage. 

Apparently subway construction led to a sink hole opening up under the
archive also swallowing up some houses to either side. It's amazing more
didn't die as a result. The salvage operations are amazing to watch,
especially the construction of the roof over the site while work is going on
below. They are working very fast. One person is still missing.
