Police are investigating arson as a possible cause of the fire, which broke out in the early morning hours and roused several nearby residents. Andrew Pamthilon, 27, lives 50 yards from the tourist attraction. "I was woken up at 4:30 by what sounded like two large explosions," he told the BBC. "I ran out into the street and saw huge flames. I could feel the heat from 50 yards away, it was so intense."
