Have a look at this story below from the Register.

A fire on the fourth floor of Belfast’s Telephone House tore through a BT data centre, burning the customers of affected ISPs, as well as those seeking to access several government websites.

The major incident – which is not being treated as suspicious – was attended by several fire crews, backed up by six fire engines, an “aerial appliance” (a glorified cherry-picker) and a command support unit at 05:08 this morning.

Eight fire fighters, garbed in breathing apparatus, were sent into the building to attack the fire, which was successfully extinguished.

“Today’s incident disrupted the power supply to the data centre only,” said a BT spokesman, and “no customer data or equipment was damaged”, adding that “a number of customers were affected”.

Asked whether BT is concerned that this issue might affect its other data centres, the telecoms giant responded with a resounding “no”.
