Fire breaks out in paint warehouse

Firefighters have been called out to a blaze at an industrial factory this evening.

At least four pumps are currently attending a fire at PPG Industries in Needham Road, Stowmarket, the site of the former ICI paints factory.

The alarm was raised just before 7pm when an electrical fire broke out in a pallet truck.

There was a considerable amount of smoke in the 50 square metre warehouse, which firefighters from Stowmarket, Needham and Ipswich battled to clear.

The fire is now believed to have been extinguished, although fire crews remain at the scene.
