Firefighters Damp Down Oldbury Factory Blaze
Firefighters have spent the night damping down at a plastics factory in Oldbury after a huge fire there yesterday. (Wednesday)
We're told all the employees at the site on Tat Bank Road managed to get out safely.
75 firefighters were needed at the height of the fire - the road is still closed this morning.
The fire service was originally called out at 1.17pm.
A spokesperson for West Midlands Fire Service said: "This is a severe fire in a single storey plastics factory, measuring around 80m by 40m. All of the roof is on fire. All of the emergency services are at the scene."
The fire appears to have started in a storage area, but the cause is still unkown and will be investigated.
There were 29 staff on site at the time, all of whom were evacuated, none of whom was hurt.
