College of Arms Fire: Updated Articles

I haven't been able to find much more than general articles about the fire. The biggest concern, after the possible damage to the builing itself, is of course the records held by some of the heralds whose offices are in that wing.

I'll keep watching for further news, and post links here as I can find out more.
