The fire service say that on arrival, firefighters were confronted with a single storey building which was well alight and are using four sets of breathing apparatus and two main jets to tackle the fire.

As a result of the fire the Welfare roundabout and road up to Crown cordoned off.

Cllr Rob Walsh, who represents Llay, said: “Firefighters working hard to keep the blaze under control. Not much fire visible but plenty of smoke. Welfare roundabout and road up to Crown cordoned off, so if heading that way please divert.”

Streetlights from Watts Dyke to Welfare along Llay New Road and on First Avenue are out.

Local residents are advised to close all windows and doors whilst the incident is being dealt with.
