When I arrived, it was thought acetylene cylinders
were involved and a cordon was set up appropriately.
This was the only shot I could get from outside the cordon with the fire seeN between two houses.
It was later established that acetylene was
not involved and the 200m cordon was lifted.
This picture, taken from Taylors Lane, shows the the fire still burning at the rear of the premises.
Later, when the fire was extinguished, I was taken on to the fireground. to see the extent of the damage.
