Nine fire appliances from across Fenland are at the scene of the blaze in Creek Fen, March.

It is thought the building was being used for the repair and maintenance of cars.

Nearby vehicles – including a lorry and a van and a forklift- have been moved as fire fighters tackle the blaze.

Gas bottles have also been removed from the area.

The flames have been seen from as far away as Downham Market.
