24 April 2014
Seven people – including three firefighters - have been injured after a fire and explosion at a sawmill on an industrial estate in Moray, northern Scotland. An air ambulance was called to the scene and took the worst injured to hospital.
The blast happened at around 10.30am on April 24 as fire crews tackled a blaze at James Jones & Sons Ltd on the Greshop Industrial Estate in Forres, northern Scotland.
The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service has told MFR that the blaze continues at the site, but that the fire's been brought 'under control' by its crews who are still on-scene. The Scottish Daily Record said the explosion happened later in a wood dust storage silo.
