Have your say

A FIRE caused severe damage to an animal health product factory.

Flames lit up the sky in Stamford last night after a Volvo lorry parked at the Alltech UK building in Ryhall Road caught fire.

Fire crews from Stamford, Bourne and Market Deeping attended the blaze, which began shortly before 9pm.

The fire caused severe damage to the lorry, about 20 large, empty chemical containers and the walls and cladding of the industrial unit.

The remainder of the unit suffered smoke damage. No-one was injured in the blaze.

Crews extinguished the fire using two main jets, two hose reels and two breathing apparatus.

It is believed the fire was caused by a mechanical failure under the lorry.
