Fire crews are currently attending a fire at Tursdale near Spennymoor
It's understood the factory unit is well alight and the fire involves acetylene cylinders.
Five appliances are on scene along with the aerial ladder platform.
A father from Darlington says he's insulted at being offered forty pounds worth of vouchers by a supermarket which, he claims, sold him a cake with two pieces of plastic inside.
Michael Russell says he unwittingly gave the mini-muffin to his baby daughter Lilly May, who began to choke on it.
Mr Russell told ITV Tyne Tees that his concern is not money-related, but says he would not want another family to go through a similar situation.
Lidl, where the item was bought, says it is extremely concerned to hear what happened and is speaking to the product's supplier. It says it will keep Mr Russell informed with any findings.
Watch Jonny Blair's report here:
Darlington boxer Stuart Hall has failed in his latest world title bid, after being beaten by fellow-Brit Lee Haskins at the O2 Arena in London on Saturday night.
It was a second successful defence of his IBF bantamweight title for Haskins - with a hard-fought unanimous decision victory.
Darlington boxer Stuart Hall may never again fight for a world title, having lost his in 2014, but impressed in truly testing Haskins and consistently landing the heavier punches.
It was Haskins' superior mobility and punch variety that secured his latest win, via scores of 115-113, 116-112 and 117-111 on the three judges' scorecards.
He did not entirely convince, however, and the crowd present booed the decision before cheering Hall.
It concluded with the challenger, Hall, as the aggressor and in the ascendancy, and while Haskins may have deserved the decision, the judges' scores appeared too wide.
