FROM THE ED­I­TOR Huge dam­age of blaze now clear

Evening Times - - NEWS -

THE fire at the whole­sale fruit mar­ket in Blochairn was fe­ro­cious in its in­ten­sity.

The pic­tures we print to­day by our pho­tog­ra­pher Jamie Simp­son show the dam­age done by the blaze.

Heaps of twisted metal and charred build­ing ma­te­ri­als lie along­side piles of dis­carded pro­duce in the wreck­age of the site.

Han­nah Rodger’s in­ter­view with se­nior fire­fighter Jim Hy­mas gives a fas­ci­nat­ing in­sight into the work done by res­cue teams.

The sit­u­a­tion his fire­fight­ers were in as they tack­led the blaze sounds ter­ri­fy­ing. Gra­ham Shields Ed­i­tor
