Station Commander Gary Deacon, who was at the scene, said: “The fire was producing a large amount of smoke and those in the local area were advised to keep their windows and doors shut until smoke subsided.

“A 25-metre cordon has been put in place as a precaution and traffic is building up, so please avoid the area where possible.

“The roof of the building has partially collapsed and crews are expected to remain on scene for some time this evening extinguishing remaining pockets of fire.”
