Firefighters have had to tackle two blazes at a disused Aberdeen factory in one day.
Emergency services were originally called to the Broadford Works at 12.30pm on Thursday to extinguish “multiple fires within the building” and were forced to return after another call at 4.05pm with part of the building again in flames.
The original call forced the closure of Maberley Street, between its junction with Skene Square and Charlotte Street, to allow access for emergency vehicles but the roads remained opened as firefighters again battle flames.
A Grampian Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said ten firefighters had tackled both fires and that two appliances had stayed at the scene to “dampen” the area.
It is the third fire at the building in a week as fire crews spent around two hours tackling a blaze on Monday evening.
The Broadford Works, which has lain empty since 2004 when Aberdeen textile business Richards closed its doors, has been a frequent target for firebugs.
