Fire at former Quinn glass plant in Derrylin

PSNI are investigating a suspected arson attack at a glass manufacturing plant in Derrylin, which was formerly owned by Sean Quinn.

Firefighters were called to the Quinn Glass factory on the Ballyconnell Road, just after 10pm last night. No one was injured and a PSNI spokesperson said they are treating the fire as probable arson.

A spokesman for the Aventas Group confirmed to The Anglo-Celt that at about 10.30pm last night, a fire started at a power generator at the rear of the Quinn Glass building. The cause of the fire is not yet confirmed.
The fire was quickly brought under control, and while there was some disruptions to the plant, after a few hours it was back to full production.
The incident is being investigated by the PSNI.
