FIREFIGHTERS are still dampening down at the scene of a large blaze which completely destroyed a warehouse in Worcester last night.

At the height of the fire at J Mart Warehouse, Newtown Road Trading Estate - which only opened last week - 11 appliances were tackling the flames.

Fire crews were first called at 11pm last night and they are expected to be there throughout the day damping down.

Police are currently not treating the blaze as suspicious and early reports suggest an electrical fault may have caused the fire.

I believe this store has just opened. There was a flyer in the Journal this week. Sorry to see this. Hope the business recovers.

Such a shame - I went in there Saturday morning and it seemed an interesting place with lots of different stuff. Must be heartbreaking for the people who work there.
