Two pumps from Leominster attended and using breathing apparatus, thermal imaging equipment and two high pressure hose reels, the fire was brought under control shortly before 1:40am.

A separate car fire in Paradise Court off Mill Street was also reported at around 1.20am this morning. One appliance from Kingsland attended and firefighters were able to extinguish the fire by around 2.35am. Two other cars were damaged during the incident.
