Fire crew injured at mill blaze
TWO firefighters were injured in an explosion while battling a large blaze at a commercial property yesterday morning.
The fire broke out at the Palfab sawmill at around 4.30am in Lissarda, near Macroom, west of Cork city.
It’s understood the firefighters were not seriously hurt but suffered “shockwave injuries” and ringing in their ears after the blast.
Both were taken to Cork University Hospital as a precautionary measure.
The sawmill was gutted by the blaze and a team has been sent to assess the damage.
