Missing acetylene cylinder recovered in Gweedore

A missing acetylene cylinder has been recovered in Gweedore after a fire at a small garage in the Glassagh area yesterday morning.

While the cylinder was not damaged, the fire service feared it was unstable. Up to 10 houses were evacuated, a 200 metre cordon was put in place around the garage, and a system was put in place to spray the cylinder with water.

However, shortly after 6 o'clock, it was discovered the cylinder was missing from the garage.

Gardai have now confirmed that while it had been taken from the building, it was still within the 200 metre cordon, and their investigations are continuing.
