Fire destroys a warehouse at the Jefferson Smurfit plant at Ballymount Lane, Walkinstown.
Four units of the Dublin Fire Brigade brought the fire under control last night, assisted by Jefferson Smurfit night workers, who contained the blaze at the dispatch warehouse. The fire was prevented from spreading to the manufacturing section and other buildings on the factory’s twelve-acre site.
