FLASHBACK: Spectacular Fire Gutted Empty Greenock Flats

22 June, 2024 | Latest Photos, Local

FROM The Archive: Looking back to May 2016 when firefighters tackled a large blaze at vacant Greenock tenements.

Flames ripped through the roof of flats at Drumfrochar Square, Broomhill, as crowds watched and the adjacent main road was closed to traffic.

The properties were empty having been lined up for demolition by housing association River Clyde Homes.
