Firefighters used breathing apparatus, a covering jet and hose reel jet to extinguish the flames.

Market Drayton Safer Neighbourhood Team said that the road was closed but no one was injured.

The fire caused a power cut to nearby properties.

As a precaution, police advised local residents to keep their windows and doors closed due to the smoke caused by the blaze.

Crews from Market Drayton, Whitchurch, Hodnet and Audlem were sent to the scene.
