Fire in workshopA severe fire in a car workshop has been dealt with by firefighters.

When crews arrived they found the premises well-alight.

Six fire engines and the AF&RS Command Unit attended the incident. Three firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used three jets and a foam jet to extinguish the blaze.
