THE cause of a fire in a large shed used to store gas cylinders on Tummery Road, between Dromore and Irvinestown, is currently under investigation, the Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service (NIFRS) has confirmed.
Fire crews from Irvinestown, Dromore, Fintona, Belleek and Enniskillen battled for more than five hours this morning to bring the blaze under control.
The Tummery Road was closed while the firefighters dealt with the incident, but it has now re-opened.
An NIFRS spokesperson said that a call had been received at around 4.20am to attend a fire at a large shed on Tummery Road.
He said, “The shed was used to store a number of gas cylinders and had collapsed. Firefighters used hose reel jets to extinguish the fire and cool the cylinders down to a safe temperature.”
The spokesperson added that gas provider, BOC, had been informed that the cylinders were now safe to be removed.
