The fire at the Cattle Market in Nottingham has now been dealt with, after crews worked through the night to bring the incident to a safe resolution.

15 fire engines and three aerial ladder platforms from across Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire were called to the fire, which started shortly before 5:30pm yesterday evening (4 November).

Four buildings have been completed destroyed in the fire, and at its height, around 85 firefighters were on scene.

A joint fire investigation between the Service and Nottinghamshire Police is currently underway, and only one fire engine now remains on scene.

The fire caused disruption to roads around the area, however Meadow Lane is now open, while Incinerator Road and Clarke Road remain closed while the investigation into the cause of the fire takes place.

Station Manager Simon Glew was the Incident Commander at the scene today, and said: “This was a significant fire, and our crews worked through the night to bring the incident under control, and our praise goes to them for their hard work in keeping the public safe.

“The fire involved a number of buildings and an investigation is now taking place to determine the cause of the fire.

“We were assisted by our colleagues in Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service and Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service, and throughout yesterday evening and today, we continued to work with our partner agencies including Nottinghamshire Police, Nottingham City Council and East Midlands Ambulance Service.

“The incident has had a safe resolution, and we would like to thank the public and commuters in the area for their patience whilst we have dealt with this.”
