Warwickshire warehouse fire damages three units

Fire investigators have started work at the scene of a major fire at a warehouse in north Warwickshire.

About 50 firefighters and support crews were called to the building belonging to Sofa World, in Coleshill, at about 16:45 GMT on Tuesday.

A fire service spokeswoman said the fire spread to two smaller units in Gorsey Lane, on the Jubilee Industrial Estate, also used for storing sofas.

Crews created fire breaks to stop other units being destroyed.

Steve Langor, from Warwickshire Fire Service, said the fire caused extensive damage.

He said: "There's not a great deal left to investigate in the units where the fire started."
