Fire is left undisturbed

A FIRE which continues to smoulder at the Keenan Recycling facility at New Deer has ‘no air quality issues’, according to Aberdeenshire Council. Residents continue to expresse concerns over the fire, which has been burning since June.

An Aberdeenshire Council spokesperson said the Multi Agency Group dealing with the situation met on Tuesday, adding: “Continuous monitoring by the group has shown there are no air quality issues. The diminishing amount of material is burning out internally and safely with little in the way of emissions. Regular assessments are continuing to be made by Grampian Fire and Rescue Service.”
