Fire rips through Paisley building days after huge blaze at Linwood industrial estate

A huge fire ripped through a Paisley tenement in the early hours on Saturday, June 29, just days after a massive inferno at Linwood industrial estate (June 23).

Emergency services including police and firefighters rushed to Well Street just before 1am following reports of a 'derelict' building up in flames. The building was reportedly vacant at the time of the fire.

The road was closed from Well Street to Brown Street while fire crews battled the blaze and motorists were advised to avoid the area.

The cause of the blaze remains unclear at this stage.

This incident comes less than a week after a nearby recycling plant in Linwood went on fire.

"Operations Control mobilised six fire appliances and one height vehicle and firefighters extinguished a fire affecting a top floor and roof space of a four-storey tenement building.

"There were no reported casualties and crews left after ensuring the area was made safe."
