Its burning down. I could see the column of smoke from the 10 Loop out near Home Depot. The top of the North Campus parking deck has a lot of ash on it. Looks like the building is a total loss.

Yeah, I'm reading through twitter that the firefighters have been at it for 45 minutes. It sounds like now they are just trying to contain it. Love twitter for emergencies.

Good day to bring my camera -- thanks for the heads up Tim. I'm going to park on the roof.

... and it is very sad. Georgia Theatre is kind part of my history, too. I went to many many events there.

it's gone and the buildings around it have sustained damage, too.

I can't believe it... I was supposed to see P-Groove there tonight! I loved Georgia Theatre...many amazing shows. We don't have anything like it in Clemson. I got a call this morning at 7:30...my friend said it was ablaze...not what I was expecting. Truly saddened. How could this have happened?
