Fire in Reddings Lane, 29 September 2014

In the early hours of this morning, a large fire swept through a cluster of warehouse / light industrial buildings in Reddings Lane, Tyseley, Birmingham, near the ‘new’ Yardleys school.

About 70 fire service personnel from stations including Solihull, Bournbrook, and Handsworth, were called to the scene.

The road was sealed off by police, but residents were allowed to stay in their homes. The same site was the scene of suspected arson only last week.

At least nine major appliances were despatched, including two telescopic platforms, with one of them tackling the fire from Yardley school grounds. Because of the site’s geography, the crews seem to have had difficulty in obtaining a good hosing angle for the other platform, which was eventually set up in the school driveway.
