Around 50 fire fighters from over a dozen stations are dealing with a major blaze in a factory bulding in heckington this afternoon (Thursday).

Hoses are pouring water into the commercial building belonging to The Roasting Company on Heckington Business Park.

Neighbours have been told to stay in doors and close windows.

Photos of the ongoing battle by firefighters and the developing situation have been shared with us by Andrew Bradley and Shane Smith.

One resident said: “Pleased to hear there are no casualties and hope the building and business can be saved. Sad, there could be job losses if not.”

Another resixdent said her son who works there had got out safely and been sent home.

“All out and safe thankfully, but could only take essentials out before being sent home - closed till further notice. All three ovens were alight and thought to be destroyed.”
