Fire - Kettletoft, Sanday - Update

Issued: 27 Sep 2010

THE fire which has affected 3 buildings, a shop, a garage and a recyclying centre, in Kettletoft, Sanday, has been brought under control.

22 people were evacuated in the early hours of the morning from 7 properties in the area.

Due to the fuel and oxy acetylene involved the cordon will remain in place for a cooling period to ensure the area is completely safe. This may be 24 hours, but will be continually assessed by Fire and Police.

A 52 year-old man has been detained in connection with the incident.

A report will be made to the Procurator Fiscal.
