When asked if anyone was in the building, a police spokesperson said “at this time there is no reason to believe there is anyone inside the building, however a thorough search of the premises will be conducted once the fire is extinguished.”

Fire appliances lined the road outside the burning building as fire fighters fought to control the blaze. One tanker truck was positioned at the canal below, feeding the above trucks with a water supply.

At approximately 3am, the Fire Service’s ‘Bronco’ truck arrived which allowed fire fighters to attack the blaze from above. The fire was extinguished by 6am and the road reopened to vehicular traffic.
