Fire burns down Japan’s historic Shuri Castle

A fire broke out early Thursday at the Shuri Castle on Japan’s southern island of Okinawa, nearly destroying the 600-year-old UNESCO World Heritage site. The main Seiden temple and a Hokuden structure have burned down. Firefighters are still battling the fire, and nearby residents have been evacuated. The cause of the fire is not known.

These monuments need to get fitted with proper fire sprinklers at the very least. Notre Dame, now this. It's sad watching history burn.

It's weird to think about a building being twice as old as the country I live in burning to the ground. Hope it gets rebuilt.
