Industrial blaze in Attleborough

A blaze at industrial premises in Attleborough last night (Friday) was extinguished by five fire crews.

Emergency crews from Attleborough and Wymondham were called at about 5.30pm after reports of wood shavings on fire at a commercial building on Bunn's Bank.

When they arrived they found an industrial dryer well alight and called in assistance from Earlham, Hethersett and Fakenham, including an aerial ladder platform and a water carrier.

Hose reel jets were used from ladders to extinguish the blaze, while teams used the aerial ladder platform to check for hot spots.
