Army Technical Officers, police and fire crews were tasked to the Glenville Road in Whiteabbey on Thursday night (May 19) following an incident at a disused industrial unit.
At around 9pm, the PSNI and Fire and Rescue Service received a report of a small fire on a mezzanine floor in premises at the Glenville Industrial Estate.
Police officers, as well as three fire crews from Glengormley and Belfast, were tasked to the scene. Upon attendance, a suspicious object was noted and ATO were called in.
“ATO attended and later declared the object to be nothing untoward. No evacuations or road closures were implemented,” a PSNI spokesman said.
Firefighters using hosereel jets and breathing apparatus dealt with the fire at the property, which it’s believed was started deliberately.
