If you’re wondering what all the sirens were in Brownhills early this evening (Thursday, 21st April 2016), there was a fairly large fire broke out at National Tyres, just at Co-op Corner, on the junction of Lichfield Road and Ogley Road.
Various tweets from the local fire service show that three crews dealt with the fire which appears to have broken out in rubbish on the site.
It’s not believed anyone was hurt, and the fire was brought under control by firefighters.
