Shortly before 10.15pm on Monday 31 July, we responded to a scrapyard fire in an industrial estate on Moor Street, Brierley Hill.

Seven fire engines crewed by around 35 firefighters from Black Country and Birmingham fire stations attended. The first vehicle arrived within three minutes of being mobilised. An aerial platform was also sent to the scene.

This was a severe fire involving a large quantity of scrap in a yard.

Access to Moor Street was limited for a period of time, but the road has now fully re-opened.

One woman is believed to have been conveyed to Russells Hall Hospital by the ambulance service. There were no other casualties or injuries reported as a result of the fire.

The fire was confirmed to be out shortly after 9.30am. Two fire engines remain at the scene damping down and checking for further hotspots.

We will be conducting re-visits throughout the day.
