    Fifty people from a Brixton apartment complex had to be evacuated as a fire spread quickly after what witnesses said was a series of explosions. Three people have been hospitalized with smoke inhalation.

    “We were having lunch and heard a small explosion and we saw a black cloud of smoke going up and the growing fire,” an eyewitness near to the Canterbury Crescent complex told the London Evening Standard. “Some seconds after the first explosion he heard one or two more, also small. There were some people in the field in front, I guess calling the emergencies.”

    If a BMW was doing driveby shootings, you wouldn't suspect a Ford.

    I wasn't thinking of any, as we don't know for sure whether this was a terrorist attack or something else. Sorry to disappoint you.
