A major Sheffield road has been closed by emergency services tonight due to a major fire.

Station Road in Chapeltown is currently closed after a fire broke out.

The fire was initially confined to some bushes but then spread to a nearby building.

The commercial building is not thought to be occupied but the extent of the fire is thought to be severe and the road has been closed by police ‘for the safety of the public.”

UPDATE: The fire is at Fairfield Caravan Park. Several caravans are ablaze right now.

South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service’s spokesman told The Star the fire is ‘quite a large fire’.

Motorists are advised to avoid the road overnight.
