‘Significant damage’ has been caused to the Hexthorpe industrial unit which caught fire yesterday morning.

Dave Wilkinson, Assistant Director for Trading Services and Assets, said: “Our dangerous structures team has carried out an inspection to ensure the site is safe and securable and will continue to monitor the situation.

“There has been significant fire damage and the owner will need to decide whether it is economically viable to maintain the building.”

Around 40 firefighters spent nearly ten hours battling the blaze that started at the unit in Albion Terrace, Hexthorpe at 8.10am.

Investigations are currently underway to establish the cause.
