Crews from Penkridge and Cannock Fire Station used water jets to extinguish the flames and to prevent them from spreading further.

It happened yesterday morning from before 11am.

A Staffordshire Fire and Rescue spokesperson said: "We were called to Littleton Drive in Huntington at 10.56am following reports of a fire at a factory.

"Crews from Penkridge and Cannock attended, with four firefighters using breathing apparatus, one hose reel and a main reel jet to control the blaze.

"The pallets were well alight on arrival and it did start to spread to the premises of the factory."
