A family escaped uninjured following a house fire in Cork early this morning. Three Units of Cork City Fire Brigade were alerted to a House Fire in Ballyphehane shortly before 7am. The house, which was occupied at the time, was located at O’ Growney Crescent, Pears Road. The occupants of the house were safely removed from the fire and there were no reports of any inures. Fire crews left the scene at around 8.30am.
Meanwhile, Cork City Fire Brigade and Cork County Fire Service tackled a blaze which broke out at a disused dairy products warehouse in Riverstown, Glanmire last night. The alarm was raised at around 7.15pm.
Cork City Fire Brigade mobilised two Fire Tenders, a Water Carrier and an Aerial Ladder Platform while fire crews from Cobh and Middleton were also called to assist. On arrival, fire fighters found a fire in the roof of the premises to be ‘Well established’ before they quickly brought the blaze under control.
The scene was declared safe at approximately 11pm; however, the fire brigade remained at the scene for a number of hours overnight to dampen down the fire.
