In latest news, Google’s UK building was set ablaze yesterday as a result of a company-wide barbecue. Although the fire did not cause any major damage, it took firefighters over an hour to put out the flames. The fire, however, was under control within just a few minutes.
The Google UK Office houses approximately 5,000 employees. Google’s spokesman reported a safe evacuation with no injuries. Also when further asked about the incident, the spokesman reported the following:
“We have free food for staff at our offices and today was a barbecue day. We were having a barbecue on the patio where the fire started. There was no serious damaged to the building and thankfully no one was hurt. We’re all back in the offices now.”
Most of the damage was minor, resulting from the smoke produced by the fire. Business in Google’s UK building has resumed, with operations returning to a normal level.
