West Calder: printing works fire
A blaze broke out at Amcor Flexibles at the Brucefield Industrial Estate in West Calder at midday on September 16th. It took more than 70 firefighters until 1800 to put the fire out. At its peak, it created a huge plume of black smoke which could be seen for miles. This is the view from the deck of the Rosyth-Zeebrugge ferry, some 17 miles away in the Firth of Forth.
