A large industrial unit in Witchford caught fire on Tuesday morning.

Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service said a “paint spraying unit” measuring some 40sqm had caught fire on the Lancaster Way Business Park shortly before 7am.

The blaze also involved a pile of wood and eight vehicles.

Two fire engines from Ely, two from Cambridge and backup crews from Littleport and Chatteris were called to the scene along with a water carrier from Newmarket.

A spokesman said that crews had “sectorised the incident” and were tackling the flames with hose reels and jets.

The cause of the fire at this stage remains unknown.
