Firefighters say there have been no fatalities but one man was treated for smoke inhalation at Ladygrove Business Park.

Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service received numerous calls to the incident on the A4136 Gloucester Road, in Mitcheldean, at around 11.45am.

A fire service spokesman said: “There are no fatalities but one man was treated at the scene for smoke inhalation.

“On arrival, the crews were able to confirm the fire to be within a paint spraying unit in the business park.

“The incident is now being scaled down and currently there are three Gloucestershire fire appliances still in attendance damping down the area.”

At the height of the blaze, Crews from Cinderford, Ross-on-Wye, Newent, Hereford and Worcester were sent to the incident with a total of ten firefighters.

A further two appliances from Coleford with nine firefighters and an aerial appliance from Gloucester, as well as the Incident Command Unit from Cheltenham, were also called to the scene.
