A fire severely damaged the Cutty Sark while it was undergoing renovation at dry dock in Greenwich, just outside London.  The ship, which had been a popular tourist attraction, burned for over two hours.

Due to the renovation, many of the ships planks and most of its detailing had been removed and were not damaged in the fire.  The Cutty Sark Society (the charitable trust overseeing the ship) indicated their intent to rebuild, but a schedule was not announced.  For further details see their website.
