Fire-raising in derelict buildings

On a monthly basis, I receive updates on fire incidents across the Hillhead ward. This month, my attention has been drawn to the empty building on Baird's Brae, near the Forth and Clyde Canal. 

Damaged office building on Baird's Brae.

This building has not been secure in recent weeks. It would appear from reported incidents, this empty property has been a target of fire-raising during 2014. 

A plan is needed to ensure the site is made safe and efforts are focused on the prevention of any further fire-raising. In the long-term, I would hope the site can be regenerated as part of the Canal Quarter.
