Station Commander Emma Carr, who was at the scene, said: “Crews worked hard in hot conditions to bring the fire at an industrial unit under control.
“There was heavy smoke, so locals were urged to close windows and doors and avoid the area.
“Fire crews carried out salvage operations of expensive stock and items identified by business owners.”

The cause of the fire is still unknown.
