Bradley Ln, Bilston, UK

Shortly after 1.05am on Sunday 14 January, we responded to Bradley Lane, Wolverhampton.

Twelve fire engines, five 4×4 brigade response vehicles and two hydraulic aerial platforms responded initially, crewed by around 70 firefighters.

This was a fire in a factory unit, measuring 100×30 metres. The fire was tackled in four different sectors and crews were supported by drone operations. A high-volume water pumping unit was also utilised at the scene.

A multi-agency briefing involving police, ambulance and site representatives took place and the incident was scaled down at around 5.00am after good progress was made.

Bradley Lane was closed as we worked at the scene, but has since re-opened to traffic.

Crews have continued visiting the site to extinguish hotspots, and this work is expected to continue throughout the day.
