Madras Fire, Burnbank

A significant fire closed off part of Burnbank, earlier this evening Monday 3rd November 2018.

Police cars blocked off the road completely at Burnbank Road around 5.00pm diverting traffic as firefighters tended to a fire, which seems to have broken out just after 4pm at the Madras Indian Takeaway.

Further police arrived and set up cordoned off area outside Divitos/ Chinese takeaway. Ambulance and utility services arrived (Gas).  The fire caused some serious traffic tailback, especially at rush hour although the roads have now reopened again. Traffic was diverted back to the roundabout and back again towards Hamilton.
