Fire Emergency At Battery Factory Was Minor 29 September 03
The Battery Factory just outside Thurso had a small fire today in one of its experimental units testing a new battery.  A small flame set of the alarm systems and there was some smoke damage amount to about two square metres on a wall.

Two units from the Fire service in Caithness attended having been notified by the automated alarm systems.  Staff were evacuated following well established procedures as a precaution in these circumstances.  Management were pleased that the small incident proved that all of the emergency systems were working perfectly.
