Quarry fire sparks inquiry
Three derelict vehicles parked at the government quarry caught fire yesterday.
A fire service spokesman said firefighters were called out to the quarry in Hamilton Parish just before 9.30am.
The spokesman said: “Firefighters quickly extinguished the blaze using water and foam.”
A total of 16 firefighters and four trucks tackled the blaze.
The fire service spokesman said: “The vehicles involved in the fire were a small bus, a truck, and a construction machine.
“The vehicles were said to be derelict and have not been in operation for years.”
The spokesman added: “Early reports indicated that personnel were cutting metal in the area prior to the fire, but inquiries are still ongoing.”
No one was injured as a result of the fire.
