On 6th March the Stoke Sentinel reported that 22 firefighters had worked overnight to extinguish a major blaze at the car dismantler McGuinness & Sons, in Longport, Stoke-On-Trent.

Emergency services had been called to the scene at around 5.40pm, where they found a number of vehicles alight and plumes of black smoke rising in the sky.

The blaze is believed to have been started deliberately.

Staffordshire Police ha...
ve also been made aware of a possible connection between this fire & a second incident, which took place less than 20 minutes later in a disused factory behind the scrapyard, in Mill Vale Street.

A Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said: "A number of cars have been on fire and compressed air foam is now being used as water was ineffective. The metal was so hot, the water was just evaporating. The foam is now smothering it and the incident is under control.”

"We were also called out to another incident in the area at 6pm, when we received a call regarding a fire in a disused factory in Milvale Street. The police are aware of the incident."
