FIRE crews are currently dealing with a huge blaze at a garage in Bowerham.

The fire broke out at around 4pm this afternoon, Wednesday September 19, at Parkfield Garage in Bowerham Road, spreading quickly to adjacent properties.

Three fire engines and six firefighters with breathing apparatus attended the scene and Bowerham Road was closed in both directions while the incident was being dealt with.

Chris Dale, from Palatine Road, saw the incident unfold.

He said: “The garage went up and you could see smoke billowing out of the roof from streets away.

“It looked like a car inside had started the fire.

“The cornershop next door went up, and so did the Wolfwood charity shop on the other side.”
