Two fire engines from Banbury were called to a fire at Encase Ltd on Friday morning.

They attended the premises on the Beaumont Road Industrial Estate at about 5am, where firefighters were confronted with smoke issuing from an open warehouse roller shutter door. A member of staff indicated there was a piece of machinery on fire in the factory.

All staff members were evacuated from the premises and the fire was quickly dealt with by firefighters wearing breathing apparatus and using a high pressure hose reel jet. The warehouse was fully smoke logged and two high pressure fans were used to help remove the smoke from the building.
