Firefighters are still tackling a fire that broke out in the early hours of 18 November at the site in Gronowo Górne of Polish recyclates producer ML Sp. z o.o. recyclate production plant. Units from both the State and Volunteer Fire Departments responded to the call.
In a statement issued earlier today, the ML management board said that there were no casualties among either plant employees or those fighting the fire. Due to ML’s practice of consistently conducting fire drills, ‘the worst has been avoided’, the statement continued.
According to initial reports, the worst of the damage has been suffered by the production material warehouse, which has burned down.
Thanks to the rapid action taken by the employees of ML and continued by the Fire Department units, however, the production infrastructure was not destroyed. The cause of the blaze will be established pending the findings of the final findings of experts. Similarly, the full extent of damage and loss will be estimated only after all the activities at the scene of the incident have been completed.
As far as possible, the company will remain open for business over the coming days. “The warehouse, logistics and the commercial departments are operating without restraints, processing current transports,” the statement said.
All deliveries to the company are being carried out as scheduled. Some adjustments may have to be made to the schedule for outgoing shipments. Clients will be informed of any changes on an individual basis.
