Today at about 2:30pm I noticed a fair amount of smoke towards the east, I initially assumed the fire was in the same suburb, until climbing the tower crane and saw the smoke coming directly in the center of Lend Lease's construction site at Barangaroo. I got on the twitter account @cranecrews and let my good followers know what was going on, within 5 mins news helicopters from CH9 and CH7 arrived so I knew it was kind of a big deal, at 3pm I left to go home, smoke was still coming from the site
Also roads were starting to build up traffic due to diversions, for anyone who doesn't know the building site is on the border to the central business district. PS sorry for bad picture quality, I am going to invest in a better camera phone very soon ;).
PS builder for the site is LendLease, remember those guys had a big fire at Broadway at the start of 2013 where a Favco tower crane collapsed?
