Fire crews from Shannon were mobilised to assist colleagues from Limerick city and county at a second major blaze in less than 24 hours.
A fire and several explosions were reported this morning at a facility in the Raheen Industrial Estate on the outskirts of the city. The alarm was raised at around 11.40am with units of Limerick City Fire Service first being mobilised.
One person sustained minor injuries following one of several explosions at the DGD paper shredding company. The building has also sustained some structural damage.
On arrival at the scene, fire officers requested additional resources to help tackle the blaze. These included a hydraulic platform and incident command unit from Shannon Town.
Yesterday, fire crews from Shannon assisted with a major blaze at a scrap metal facility on the Ballysimon Road in Limerick. No one was injured in that incident.
