Large fire at Bodmin industrial estate

Appliances from 7 fire crews at Bodmin, Lostwithiel, Wadebridge, St Dennis and Newquay along with support vehicles from Launceston and St Austell are still in attendance at a commercial property fire at Cooksland Industrial Estate (near Asda) in Bodmin which started late last night.

At 23:25 a single call was received from a member of public stating they could see what looked like smoke from the building.

Both appliances from Bodmin were mobilised to investigate. On arrival it was confirmed smoke was coming from the rear of the property measuring approximately 60 x 40 metres. Crews subsequently requested three additional fire appliances and the support vehicles to go with that. Firefighters used breathing apparatus, hose reels and main jets to tackle the blaze from the ground and the aerial ladder platform from Newquay was also used to fight the fire from above.

Electricity and Gas companies also attended to isolate utilities for scene safety.
