One workman at the garage in Hayes Business Park, in Lye was superficially burned on his forehead, and a man from a neighbouring factory suffered smoke inhalation. Both were taken to hospital.

The fire service says the blaze was accidental, caused by a worker who dropped a tool into petrol vapours while working on a car.

The whole building has been affected by the fire, which also destroyed 11 cars.

Power was also lost to nearby properties, and Western Power is at the scene trying to rectify the problem.

The road at the location is also closed, with 3 fire engines and an ariel platform still at the garage. The fire is now under control.
