At a multi-agency emergency meeting on Wednesday, 6 November 2013, involving South Wales Fire & Rescue Service, South Wales Police, Public Health Wales, Natural Resources Wales and the Vale of Glamorgan Council, it was confirmed that although a small amount of asbestos is present in the roof of the affected building, the roof remains intact.
The fire has resulted in a smoke plume, likely to contain fine dust particles and products of combustion.
An acrid smell has also been reported in the area. Members of the public in the surrounding area are being advised to keep doors and windows closed as a precaution.
