An investigation has been launched into the cause of a major fire at a joiner’s workshop in Bonnybridge.

More than 50 firefighters tackled the blaze overnight and two appliances remained at the scene this morning with crews carrying out damping down work at the building.

Central Scotland Fire and Rescue Service received a call at 11.32 p.m. on Thursday and crews from Bo’ness, Falkirk, Larbert, Stirling and Denny were sent to the premises of J.D. Joinery in the town’s Broomhill Road.

At the height of the fire, seven appliances, the aerial ladder platform, the water carrier and command unit were all in attendance at the workshop, and the road was also closed.

There are no reported injuries.

Incident Commander Gordon Pryde said: “This was a large fire and as a result there has been significant damage to the building.

“Due to the fire loading at the premise, our firefighters had to work extremely hard to prevent it from spreading. We will now be working with the police to establish the cause.”
