Reports and pictures are emerging of quite a serious fire that’s occurred just off the alleyway between Ogley Road and Catshill Road, apparently at the rear of the Brownhills Telephone Exchange.
Reader and friend of the blog Scott posted the above photo on Twitter an hour ago. The smoke could be seen some way away, as captured by Ben, also on Twitter:

It’s not known as yet if there are any casualties. My sympathies, as ever, with this involved.
I’ll post more news when I get it.
