Firefighters tackle Govan blaze
Water tower and main jets in use as flames burst through
FIREFIGHTERS from Cowcaddens, Maryhill and Calton used a
water tower and main jets to tackle a blaze in the South Side of
Glasgow this morning.
Crews were first called to the Benburb Football Club, on Govan's
Craigton Drive, at around 7am. Firefighters found the single-storey
building was well alight, with flames breaking through the roof,
and attacked the fire with main jets and an Aerial Rescue Pump,
which was used as a water tower.
Firefighters brought the blaze under control and currently
remain on scene carrying out dampening down duties. There were no
reports of any injuries. A full investigation into the cause
of the blaze will begin shortly.
