Update from Fire Service

Two Northallerton crews were mobilised to reports of a commercial property on fire on Brompton Road.

On arriving at the scene, crews were faced with a developed fire to the whole of the building. The priority was to prevent the fire spreading to other nearby properties.

Further assistance was immediately requested and fire engines were sent from throughout the county. In total seven fire engines from North Yorkshire and an aerial ladder platform from Durham and Darlington Fire Service were tackling the blaze.

Due to the presence of cylinders in the building, a significant cordon had to be put in place including road closures. This was due to the risk of exploding cylinders.

Crews are now damping down and the cordon is expected to remain in place for some time.

The public are advised to avoid the area. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
