FIRE SWEEPS CARRICK PREMISES

4 May 2012 No Comments by The Northern Standard

FIRE units from three Co. Monaghan towns were called yesterday (Wed) to deal with a major fire which swept through an industrial store on the outskirts of Carrickmacross.
 The premises, which formerly used by Barford Meats Limited, was discovered ablaze shortly after lunch-time.
 A huge pall of smoke engulfed a wide area around the town as the fire raged between 2 and 3 p.m.
Fire units from Carrickmacross, Castleblayney and Ballybay were called to the scene and helped to prevent the hazard of the fire spreading to adjacent industrial premises and some nearby private dwellings.
 Earlier, firemen from Carrickmacross were again called to deal with an effluent threat from diesel dumping on a road near the town.
 The large industrial store, which was badly damaged by the blaze, contained stocks of carton packing and other materials used for wrapping.
 No one was injured in the fire and the cause of the blaze was not immediately known.
