A large fire at a wax recycling plant in Worcestershire has been brought under control by crews working through the night.
The blaze at Valan Wax Products on Saxon Industrial Estate, Bromsgrove, broke at 6.30pm.
More than 65 firefighters tackled the blaze at its height, using 15 engines including specialist foam, water, aerial, environmental and command units.
Hereford & Worcester Fire Service said the large building was fully alight and the fire threatened to spread to adjacent units.
There were other hazards including gas cylinders and a running fuel fire, but the crews managed to contain the fire to the recycling plant.
Several workers from neighbouring units were evacuated and nobody was injured at the incident.
Area commander Keith Chance said: “Due to the swift and professional actions of fire crews, working in a very hazardous environment, we have been able to prevent the fire from destroying surrounding businesses and ensure nobody was hurt.”
Fire crews will remain on-site, along with other emergency services, Environment Agency and Public Health England. The cause of the fire is as yet unknown and fire investigation is ongoing.
