Firefighters remain at the scene of a blaze at an electronic waste facility but said that local residents can now go outside.

At the height of the incident, 10 fire appliances were tackling the blaze in Burnbrae Road in Linwood Industrial estate on Sunday night.

Local residents were urged to remain indoors with windows and doors shut while emergency services dealt with the incident in Renfrewshire.

By 11am on Monday there were still five appliances at the scene, however, the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) said that people no longer need to keep windows and doors closed and can now go outdoors.

Waste solutions company Enva said the fire broke out at its Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Solutions e-waste facility and that the incident has been contained.

In a statement, Enva said: “We would like to apologise to local residents and businesses for any inconvenience caused and kindly ask them to follow any advice issued by the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service.

“There have been no injuries and the cause of the fire will be the subject of an immediate and thorough investigation.

“We will be contacting any customers impacted as soon as possible to ensure continuity of service.

“Our Linwood general waste recycling facility, whilst unaffected by the fire, will remain closed until the emergency services’ cordon is lifted and operational responsibility for the site is returned to Enva.

“We would like to thank the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service and the police for their extremely prompt and professional response.”
