Watching the cricket, they were just showing a shot of the horizon from the WACA with a plume of smoke. Talking about a fire at the Observation City Hotel.

Edit:
Commentators just clarified - there was a fire at the Hotel last night which has been extinguished, but there is another fire today in nearby parkland which is not threatening much atm.

I heard that too...but there are definitely no fire crews at Ob City at the moment.

The cricket would be delayed telecast here (im Guessing), so whatever it was must have happened earlier. It would have only been something minor, otherwise crews would still be there.
