Extra crews go to Staffordshire woodland fire

Extra firefighters were sent to the scene of a Staffordshire woodland fire during its second night following fears it could escalate.

More than 25 firefighters were at Million Woods on Mill Lane, Kinver, on Wednesday lunchtime.

Crews from two fire engines were there when two further appliances were deployed at about 0455 BST.

Firefighting was expected to continue throughout the rest of Wednesday and could continue overnight.

Crews were first called to the area on Monday evening and at the height of the incident eight fire engines were at the scene.

The cause of the fire was unknown.
