| My goodness! My Guinness brewery almost blew up!
New evidence that fire at massive brewery was almost out of control
The entire Guinness Brewery in Dublin came within moments of blowing up, it has been revealed. It took 17 fire crews four hours to put out the blaze at the giant Guinness complex in St. James Gate yesterday.
John Kidd of the Fire Service said he could not remember a more-dangerous fire in his time as a fire official.
"We were stretched beyond belief. If anything else had happened in the city, we would not have been able to cover it."
