The fire broke out in an MOT test centre on Herries Road, Fir Vale, at around 7.45pm and crews had to battle to prevent the flames from spreading to neighbouring businesses, but two other units did suffer damage.

They evacuated five nearby homes and placed as 200 metre cordon around the scene of the blaze because of fears that gas cylinders inside could have exploded in the heat.
