Portacabin fire in Wombwell spreads to vehicles and warehouse

FIREFIGHTERS are investigating the cause of a blaze in a portacabin at Valley Road Industrial Estate in Wombwell on Tuesday.

The fire started in a portacabin before spreading to a number of vehicles and to an adjacent warehouse, a spokesperson for South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue said.

Four fire engines and a turntable ladder were called to the blaze at around 6.10pm and crews worked together to stop the spread and ensure the main building, inside, was unaffected.

Nobody was injured in the incident and the fire was out by 10.15pm, added the spokesperson.

A fire investigation is taking place.

The fire service was assisted by a number of different agencies during the course of the incident including the water and electricity boards and the Environment Agency.
