Moray SNP MP & Buckie Councillor Comment On Buckie Blaze

Moray’s MP Angus Robertson and Buckie SNP Councillor, Gordon McDonald, have commented on the major blaze which ripped through the former Haldane’s store in Buckie this morning [Wednesday].

Westminster MP for Moray, Mr Robertson, said:

“This is the latest in a series of significant fires in Buckie in recent weeks. This blaze was particularly large and has destroyed a major building in Buckie’s town centre.

“While no conclusions can be drawn as yet, it is causing a great deal of concern in the community. It is extremely fortunate that no one was seriously injured today and the firefighters have to be praised for their bravery in situations like this.

“If it transpires that this blaze has been started deliberately, as other fires in the town have then it cannot be emphasised enough the sheer stupidity of such actions and the danger it can cause.”

Buckie SNP Councillor, Gordon McDonald, said:

“I have spoken to numerous people in Buckie about this shocking blaze, which caused huge disruption to residents and businesses today.

“People in Buckie are very worried about the recent spate of fires and while it is not certain that this huge blaze was deliberately started that is, not surprisingly, the concern of local people.”

In his capacity as Chair of the Buckie Regeneration Group Cllr McDonald continued:

“This was an important building that could have attracted investment into Buckie and created significant numbers of jobs. That opportunity has been lost in the short term, as the building is absolutely gutted beyond any hope of salvage.”
