Coleraine workshop fire stopped from spreading to oil tankers

A major fire has been put out at a car repair workshop next to an oil depot in Coleraine, County Londonderry.

More than 45 firefighters were needed to contain the blaze, in Hillmans Fancy on Friday night, and prevent it from spreading to six oil tankers.

Firefighters initially used unmanned external jets to tackle the fire.

There are no reports of any injuries and the cause of the fire is being investigated.

Fire crews from Coleraine were supported by others from Portrush, Portstewart, Ballymoney and Kilrea during the operation.
