Crews called to huge industrial fire in Walesby

Firefighters were called to a fire at an industrial unit on Forest Lane in Walesby just after 10:30am this morning.

Crews from Edwinstowe, Retford, Warsop, Worksop, Mansfield, Ashfield, Arnold, Newark and Stockhill are in attendance to the fire, along with an Aerial Ladder Platform and a number of other specialist appliances including a water bowser and High Volume pumps from Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service.

Group Manager Damien West is the Incident Commander at the scene. He said: “We are currently surrounding the fire and tackling it from the outside to stop it from spreading to neighbouring buildings.

“We are working with the Environment Agency to assess whether we should now tackle the fire offensively or allow it to burn in a safe and controlled way.

“Our crews are also working with a number of other agencies including Nottinghamshire Police, Severn Trent Water, East Midlands Ambulance Service and Public Health England.

“We would like to reiterate to residents to keep doors and windows closed, and we thank them for their cooperation.”
