North East Scotland Fish Factory Blaze

On a bitterly cold afternoon a Peterhead Fish factory explodes into a ball of fire close to the town centre.

At 1435 on Saturday 17th January a plume of thick black smoke was seen rising hundreds of feet over the cloudless skyline of Peterhead, Scotland. Further investigations by the RRT revealed that one of the largest fish factories situated on the harbour edge and close to the town centre was engulfed in a volcanic-like eruption of fire. The town centre immediately became a hive of activity as locals of every description seemingly appeared out of the woodwork to view this spectacular sight!
