A fire in Enniskillen, County Fermanagh, which destroyed eight boilers and a large quantity of woodchip, is being treated as accidental.

It happened in the early hours of last Friday at a former quarry near the Lough Shore Road.

Firefighters from Enniskillen, Irvinestown and Lisnaskea spent more than five hours tackling the blaze.

The 20m x 12m shed, which contained 14 tonnes of woodchip, was badly damaged.
