Timber frame site destroyed by fire
Firefighters were called to a blaze at a half-constructed timber-framed block of flats in Glasgow last week.
Strathclyde Fire and Rescue were called at 4pm on Tuesday to the site in the Yoker area of the city where the 60-flat private four-storey building was being constructed.
The properties surrounding the building, which was 75 metres long by 25 metres wide, were evacuated with the help of Strathclyde Police.
Forty firefighters battled to bring the fire under control and managed to stop it spreading to nearby flats.
The cause of the fire is not yet known. A full investigation is being jointly undertaken by Strathclyde Fire and Rescue and Strathclyde Police.
Concerns have previously been raised about the safety of part-finished timber frame homes under construction. Fire chiefs demanded urgent action to improve safety following a blaze in Peckham last year.
It had been reported the police warned Strathclyde Homes that there might be fires in the area. Strathclyde Police would not confirm or deny this. Strathclyde Homes was unavailable for comment.
