UPDATED: Fire under control


Share post:

THE ALL-CLEAR was given moments ago as a fire at the former Bridgetown Sewage Plant was brought under control.
It was just after 1 p.m. today when fire broke out.
Emergency officials ordered the evacuation of residents of surrounding areas because of the thick black smoke coming from the building.
It is understood that toxic chemicals were in danger of catching afire, but it is not clear at this time how the fire started.
The Roving Response Unit had also asked some of the businesses in the area to close. That was later rescinded after the wind direction changed, but they continued to monitor the situation.
The police were on Fontabelle directing traffic away from the fire.
Full details in tomorrow’s Midweek edition. (SAT)
