Fire engine at the scene of the fire in WidnesThere are now eight fire engines at the scene, including one from Merseyside. Firefighting activities have been suspended while the utility company isolates the power to the building.  

Residents are being asked to keep their windows and doors closed as once firefighting operations continue there is expected to be a lot of smoke in the vicinity.

UPDATE AT 15:10

Firefighters are currently waiting for the power supply to be turned off to the building. This will enable them to tackle the fire safely. It is likely that they will have to remain at the scene for some time yet.

We apologise for any disruption this causes. Please be reassured that we are doing all we can to deal with this incident.

People who live nearby are advised to keep their windows and doors shut. Everyone else is advised to avoid the area as there are several roads closed.

UPDATE AT 21:10

Firefighters have now left the scene of the fire. Hose reel jets had been used to put the fire out. A full fire investigation will now begin to find the cause of the blaze.
