FIRE crews have left the scene of a large fire on Wrexham Industrial Estate.

North Wales Fire and Rescue Service confirmed that the seven crews were called to the scene at the height of a fire on Redwither Road which will need to be investigated further to determine a cause and damage outcome, a spokeswoman confirmed.

The control room first received the call to respond to the incident on the Industrial Estate in the early hours of the morning at 4.26am.

A spokseperson for the service says: "Three appliances from Wrexham, two from Deeside, Llangollen, Johnstown, an ariel ladder platform, an environmental protection unit and an incident command unit are at the incident this morning.

"Members of the public are asked to keep away from the incident whilst firefighters are dealing with the fire. Any neighbouring properties should keep doors and windows closed."

Crews left the scene gradually before all units had left the scene at 7pm - over 12 hours after the first reported - but an official stop time on the incident was not available as the service won't conclude until after the area is investiagted fully at a later time and make sure the fire has not reignited.

The service issued a warning via social media in the morning for local residents in the vicinity of the fire to keep their windows and doors closed.

North Wales Police also posted an update from the scene of the industrial fire asking members of the public to avoid the area if possible.

Traffic log INRIX reports that Abbey Road North northbound still remains partially blocked as of 7pm due to the building fire from First Avenue to Marcher Storage Systems.

Throughout the day, is said that traffic coped well despite the blockage which was in place for several hours for safety precautions.
