Webb Street, Coseley, Bilston, UK

Shortly before 7.15pm on Monday 25 March, we responded to Webb Street, Coseley.

Five fire engines and a hydraulic aerial platform from Bilston, Tipton, Wednesbury, Wolverhampton and Dudley responded initially, the first arriving within five minutes of being mobilised. They were supported by colleagues from our technical rescue unit.

This was a fire involving six shipping containers, used as office space. Technical Rescue crews created several access points into the containers to assist with tackling fire spread. Drone operations assisted firefighters.

Good progress was made and, by 5am, we had significantly scaled down our resources. Firefighters have remained at the scene, extinguishing hotspots. We expect to have a presence at the scene throughout the day. One crew remain on-site.

No injuries were caused as a result of this incident.
