Fire at G & P’s Headquarters
A fire broke out at G & P Batteries’ site at Darlaston in the early hours of this morning (Tuesday, January 14 2014). Damage was contained to waste battery stock, with no damage to property. West Midlands fire service was called to the scene at around 1am and remained for several hours.
Michael Green, Managing Director of G & P Batteries, said : “At the height of the blaze, exploding batteries could be heard in the local area, which made the incident seem worse than it actually was. The efforts of the fire brigade meant the blaze was soon under control. A clean-up operation is now underway, although our day to day operations are continuing as normal.”
