Persia catering equipment

Emergency services are on the scene at the premises of a second-hand catering equipment supplier in Glasgow after a fire tore through an industrial unit earlier today.

Fire crews were sent to Forth Street in Pollokshields at 4.25am today after receiving calls that a building was on fire.

Local news reports said the blaze appeared to have taken hold inside a building occupied by Persia Catering Equipment, with company signage clearly visible on social media footage of the incident.

Persia is believed to use the premises to store a wide range of refurbished kitchen equipment, including cookers, fryers, pizza ovens, refrigeration cabinets, display units and ventilation canopies.

It also advertises stainless steel fabrication and equipment repair services.

Investigations into how the blaze was started are likely to get underway as soon as the area is deemed safe. The road that the building is on remained closed to the public this morning.

Scottish Fire and Rescue has been approached for comment.
