Cost of Oban blaze could soar as high as £5 million

THE COST of the fire at the largest council depot in Oban, Lorn and the Isles is likely to be valued at ‘higher than £5 million’.

The damage was done after a large industrial unit was destroyed along with technical equipment used by Argyll and Bute Council’s roads and amenity services directorate.

Criminality has not been ruled out by Police Scotland, but the site has been handed back to the local authority as it is in such a dangerous condition it would be unsafe for accident investigators to enter the area in order to carry out any further investigation.
