Crews tackle fire in wood workshop

Chittening Estate, Smoke Lane, Hallen

Firefighters have been tackling a fire in a workshop used for making wood products such as kitchen cabinets.

When crews arrived on the scene they had to gain access to the premises and four firefighters wearing breathing apparatus tackled the fire using one high pressure hose reel.

A thermal imaging camera was then used to check for hotspots once the fire was out.

Fortunately no one was inside the premises at the time and no one was hurt.

The fire is thought to have started accidentally after a fault with the heating furnace.
