GAS cylinders discovered in a blaze at a large agricultural building resulted in a Warwick road being closed.

Firefighters attended the fire on Wedgenock Lane on Monday evening (August 31).

The road was closed as a precaution after gas cylinders were found.

The building – which is used as an industrial unit – was completely engulfed in flames which could be seen from the A46.

A spokesman from Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service said: “Firefighters used water jets and hose reels to deal with the incident.

Gas cylinders were also involved and were cooled, therefore a safety hazard zone was being set up as a precaution..”
