It is unclear how the fire began but police officers also attended the scene alongside firefighters in Kidderminster.

The fire left one van and a number of scrap pieces of metal burnt out following the blaze on Lisle Avenue.

Smoke could be seen billowing into the air as firefighters dosed the flames with water hoses.
