Second blaze at Weston Mill aboned Plymouth ice cream factory building
FIREFIGHTERS and police were called to a suspected arson attack at a disused ice cream factory – for the second time in as many days.
More than a dozen firefighters battled a blaze yesterday afternoon at the derelict factory in Weston Mill, which has been plagued by fires in recent years.
Crews from Crownhill and Camels Head were called at around 3.15pm to the scene in Bridwell Road yesterday, taking about 20 minutes to get the fire – in the old refrigeration unit of the building – under control. Firefighters had also been called to the old factory at 5.30pm on Wednesday.
Watch manager Simon Kerr, of Camels Head Fire Station, said investigators would probe whether the two fires were started by arsonists.
