Fire at Meat Production Factory

Firefighters were called to a fire at a meat production factory in Grandstand Road, Hereford, at around 8am this morning.

Three appliances from Hereford attended and found that a small fire had broken out on a food conveyor belt in one of the large ovens at the premises.

The fire was contained in one compartment within the oven and four firefighters in breathing apparatus used two hose reel jets to bring it under control.

Station Manager Phil Major from Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service said: "Fire crews were at the scene within minutes and, working alongside engineers from the factory, were able to put out the fire very quickly."

No one was injured during the incident, and the stop message was given just after 9.20am.
