Firefighter injured in Cardiff 'cannabis factory' blaze

A firefighter has been hospitalised with burns after tackling a blaze at a Cardiff property housing a cannabis factory.

South Wales Fire & Rescue crews were called to the property in Grangetown at 2.48am, where they found the roof of the building alight.

A spokesperson said the fire had spread to the rear extension and was threatening neighbouring properties.

At the height of incident around 42 firefighters were at scene, as well as ambulance service workers and South Wales Police.

The fire severely damaged the property and it was only the efforts and hard work of firefighters that prevented the fire from spreading to neighbouring properties.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation by South Wales Fire and Rescue Service. However it has to be noted that these cannabis factories do create a danger to residents and firefighters.
