Four pumps from Lichfield, Chase Terrace and Cannock attended the incident which involved a fire within the compressor that had spread into the roof space of the 10m x 50m factory unit.

Station Manager, Carl Mason said: “Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used hose reel jets and a covering jet to tackle the fire. The fire is believed to have been started accidentally in the compressor which was located within the workshops area of the building. The fire has now been extinguished however crews have remained at the incident throughout the afternoon where they have been dampening down.”
