On the evening of Friday 10 June, we were called to an incident at a commercial yard on Queen Street, Wednesbury.

This was a large fire involving multiple LGVs, a minibus and a crane. Several gas cylinders were also involved.

Nine fire appliances attended, crewed by firefighters from stations across the Birmingham area.

A total of 16 firefighters wearing breathing apparatus tackled and extinguished the blaze using main jets. Foam jets were also brought into use.

The quick and assertive actions of our crews meant that they were able to contain the fire and prevent it from spreading.

One of our drones was also used to help inform operational decision making.

We were supported by Police and Ambulance colleagues. Fortunately, there were no casualties.

We remained in attendance throughout the night, as crews dampened down debris from the fire.
