Workshop fire in Gorsley
Firefighters from Gloucestershire have been called out to a workshop fire in Gorsley.
At 6.25pm last night Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service received a call to a fire at Quarry Lane, Gorsley near Newent.
One appliance from Newent Fire Station and one appliance from Cinderford attended the incident with 12 firefighters and watch commander Richard Waite in charge. As this incident was slightly over the county border in Hereford and Worcester, two appliances and a water carrier from Ross on Wye were also mobilised.
On arrival crews found a two storey workshop 20m x 20m well alight and were using two hosereels and two breathing apparatus to fight the fire. Following a request from crews on scene the specialist incident support unit from Gloucester North Fire Station was mobilised to provide extra lighting.
