The facility, which is situated on Stafford Road in Wolverhampton, saw around 40 firefighters attend the single-story unit at around 2:05am to put out the fire.

West Midlands Fire Service reported online that crews arrived in under four minutes and were supported by drone operations, along with a ‘specialist technical rescue team’.

Eight fire engines, two brigade response vehicles and a hydraulic platform were used at the scene.

The Fire Service told BBC News that the blaze was “contained within an annex” and failed to spread to the main building. No injuries were reported on site.

Firefighters remain at the facility to ‘extinguish hotspots’, while a structural engineer is due to visit the site on Monday 8th January. West Midlands Fire Service has said that it believes the fire “started accidentally”.

Scotbeef and West Midlands Fire Service have been contacted for comment.
