Well lets hope that the fire doesn't make and casualties.
From the various news-articles I gather the firesquad doesn't expect them.
But the question remains, where is the mirror for security.debain.org ?
All the debian related data is mirrored somewhere but the security site
can't be found anywhere else !

From a discussion about this a while ago I remember the reasoning was that

wait too long for the distribution of the data to those mirrors.
Then again, it might be handy to have a semi-transparent mirror for the
rare occasional disaster or to have some time for hardware/software
