Building burns throughout the night

25 Nov 2011

Firefighters have been working through the night to bring a burning building under control.

Around 30 fire crew members have been battling to extinguish the flames at the disused factory in West Lothian since 2am.

The firefighters are unable to get into the two-storey building because the roof may collapse.

A spokeswoman for Lothian and Borders Fire and Rescue said that building specialists from West Lothian Council are also at the scene in Young Street, West Calder to help figure out a way into the premises.

Firefighters are having to use breathing equipment and brought in additional hoses to help protect other buildings next to the burning ex-factory.
