The last building you'd expect to see destroyed by fire
The last building you expect to see damaged by fire - a fire station (with no smoke alarm fitted to the building)
Mr McKay said the incident was a little embarrassing, but said it was not the first time a fire station had been damaged by fire.
There was no smoke alarm fitted in the building.
Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue service (NIFRS) later issued a statement confirming the blaze destroyed two fire appliances and caused extensive damage to the building. BBC NEWS | Northern Ireland | Fire station damaged in blaze
