7 September, 2014


Sinn Féin councillor Gemma McKenna has praised the emergency services for rescuing people from a fire which destroyed a number of homes in Portadown. 

Speaking following the blaze in the Ballyoran area on Saturday, councillor McKenna said; 

"My thoughts are with those people who have lost their homes and those whose homes have been damaged. 

"Three houses were severely damaged while up to twelve other houses sustained minor damage. 

"I want to praise the emergency services who evacuated people from their homes and tackled the fire.

"Their actions prevented anyone being injured during the fire and thankfully ensured everyone was safe."

"This is a very difficult time for all those involved and would encourage anyone who requires our constituency services to contact us on 028 38349675."
