We’re saddened to see the devastation caused today by the major fire at the Columba Club, Coatshill, Blantyre.
The fire started sometime around 3pm today, Sunday 12 May 2019, with emergency services responding shortly after. As the flames took hold, thick black smoke engulfed the building. Police closed off nearby streets as firefighters got the blaze under control.
Many people said their ‘goodbyes’ to this former club some time ago, but this destructive fire really does seal the fate of the building.
(Apologies for the unusual lateness of this post. Had a rare day off today with family and came back this evening to 47 messages. We’ll post all the videos and photos later this evening). Every person will be replied to.
Here’s just some of the photos sent in to us today:
