An investigation is underway into the cause of a fire at a medical centre in the Tamworth area on Saturday (3 November).
The fire caused considerable damage to the building and to neighbouring business premises. The cause has not yet been established and an investigation is underway.
The building on Cadogan Road in the Dosthill area was severely damaged by the blaze which was reported at around 9.30pm. The fire also spread to two nearby business units.
At the height of the blaze six pumps were needed to tackle the blaze. Crews from Tamworth, Barton-under- Needwood, Burton, Tutbury, Aldridge, Cheadle and Hanley attended along with the aerial ladder platform from Burton.
