Sinn Féin Councillor Paul Fleming commented on a large scale fire in a grain shed at Foyle Port.
Speaking from the scene he said “There was concern in the local community here at the scale of this fire and if it could spread.
“Thankfully the wind direction kept the large plumes of smoke away from local homes along with the efforts of the Fire Service.
“I would like to pay tribute to the Fire Service for the work they carried here in preventing it from spreading. And I would appeal to everyone to work with the various agencies until this fire has been stopped.
