The BBC is reporting that a huge blaze has swept through the First Call Coaches depot in Merthyr Tydfil, causing 26 coaches to catch fire. More than 40 firefighters tackled the fire at the company’s Pant Industrial Estate depot on Sunday (December 28) morning. The BBC is reporting that South Wales Fire and Rescue Service said it arrived at the scene shortly after 01:00 GMT to find the fire had also spread into the main workshop. “Prompt action prevented a fire from spreading to surrounding businesses,” a spokesman told the BBC. South Wales Police and the fire service are both investigating. A police spokesman said: “The neighbouring A465 was closed to traffic due to smoke and debris on the road and diversions were put in place.”
