Clay Cross (Derbyshire) packaging factory: 9th June 2017
Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service reports that at 05:22 on the morning of Friday 9th June they were called to a fire at a factory involved in the production of cardboard packaging in Clay Cross. Two appliances from the local fire station attended.
An officer from Derbyshire F&RS reported…..
‘The incident was a fire in an industrial printing machine whereby a single sprinkler head was activated. This mitigated and contained the fire, preventing the potential fire spread to adjacent machines and stacked cardboard in the building. There was some smoke logging in the buildings.’
The photo below gives some indication of the potential for the fire to take hold in the premises.
