Lorry container destroyed by blaze in Claines

A LORRY container was completely destroyed following a fire in Claines yesterday evening.

A crew from Droitwich and two Worcester were called to the blaze in Dilmore Lane at 4.50pm.

When firefighters arrived the storage unit was well alight.

Water jets – two hoses and a main jet – were used to extinguish the blaze and thermal imaging cameras were used after to ensure it would not reignite.

Fortunately there were no casualties or injuries.
