Fire crews in Wolverhampton are expecting to remain at the scene of a major factory fire until tomorrow (Friday 27 January).
The fire broke out at Wobaston Road in Fordhouses last night and at its height, more than 100 firefighters were involved in tackling it.
This has now been scaled down to 25 but the cause of the fire has yet to be established.
The blaze involved an entire factory and its stores of paper, plus a significant amount of stored chemicals.
Area Commander Steve Taylor said “Our crews faced significant challenges, including a damaged gas main...inside the affected building."
The service worked throughout the night but said fortunately "the wind direction was in our favour."
