A fire at a paint and pallet factory in Bulwell in Nottingham has closed tram and tram lines next to the blaze.
The fire at a unit on Coventry Road broke out at around 11:30am, and more than 30 fire fighters are continuing to tackle the flames.
Surrounding homes have been evacuated because of the risk gas cylinders at the factory could explode.
