THE A90 dual carriageway between Aberdeen and Balmedie had to be closed for several hours last night, after a serious fire at the factory of a roofing manufacturer.

At one stage, over 30 firefighters from Ellon, Inverurie and Aberdeen were tackling the blaze at Stevenson and Kelly, situated beside the A90 near Potterton. Firefighters were still at the scene this morning, with daylight clearly showing the extent of the damage to at least one of the company’s buildings. A police investigation team was also on site.

No-one was injured in the blaze.
