Starting out as a small-time single player series, the foundations of FyreUK were set with their old channel, FireDragon04, which netted them over 10,000 subscribers in just 2 months of starting Minecraft Timelapses. Today, FyreUK is seen as a foothold within the Minecraft Community with their week-to-week, high quality Minecraft content that displays the effectiveness of art within a canvas of voxels. www.youtube.com/user/FyreUK
