Station Manager Claiton Murray who attended the incident said: “Thankfully there were no injuries and because the location of the fire was on an industrial estate it wasn’t near enough to roads or housing for the smoke to cause any disruption.
Crews have worked hard to stop the fire spreading to other buildings.”
