Investigation to begin into Balthane blaze

Tue, 09 Nov 2010

An investigation into the cause of a major fire on one of the Island's industrial estates will begin today.

Around 40 firefighters were called to the Balthane Industrial Estate yesterday evening after two adjoining units caught fire.

It's understood one of the units was occupied by Buck Recycling.

Fire crews spent over five hours at the scene.

Once the scene has been declared safe, fire officers will look to find out how the blaze started.

The emergency services have closed the whole of the Balthane Industrial Estate and Turkeylands Quarry for at least the next 24 hours
