Update from scene of industrial fire in Cannock

We can confirm that no-one has been reported injured and the building has been evacuated as firefighters continue to deal with an industrial fire in Cannock.  

Crews got a call just before 6.15am this morning (Thursday 9 May) to an address on Cley Road.

Whilst we’re working hard to minimise the disruption on local businesses and residents in the area, we expect road closures to be in place in the area for some time.  

Luckily, the weather is playing into our favour and excess smoke is being carried high into the air and away from residents living nearby. We’re continuing to advise people who feel they are affected to close their windows and doors as a precaution whilst we continue to work at the scene.

We’d like to thank people in the area for their patience and understanding following a period of disruption.

The cause of the fire will be investigated once it’s safe to do so.
