Fire almost closes the airport


Glasgow Airport nearly closed after a blaze in Renfrew obstructed flight paths this week, the Gazette reports. More than 4500 holidaymakers would have been hit if a crisis meeting by BAA had made the decision to close the hub. The thick black smoke from a scrap yard fire on Meadowside Street caused slight delays to air traffic but did not spark the closure of the airport.

Crews from Renfrew and Paisley battled through the night to extinguish the huge blaze, which was still going on Monday, with 14 pumps and 70 firefighters at the scene. A Strathclyde Fire and Rescue spokesperson told the newspaper: ‘Due to the size and severity, additional resources were requested to help with the fire. At its height, there were more than 70 firefighters and 14 tenders at the scene.’
