Tenement Fire, High Blantyre

Main Street, High Blantyre

A tenement is on fire in High Blantyre’s Main Street.

Shortly before 10am this morning, Saturday 06 July 2019 the shops on the lower floor at ‘Kathy’s’ and ‘Snips Hairdressers’ could smell smoke coming from the flats above.

Emergency services have been called with firefighters now on the scene.

Main Street filled fast with thick smoke forcing it to be closed off in either direction by police. The area should be avoided meantime. Unfortunately, it would appear both lower shops have been considerably damaged. We hope everybody in the vicinity is ok.
