A major incident was declared after initial calls were received by Humberside Fire and Rescue Service at 3.30pm on 24 November 2021, to a business property in Priory Tech Park, Hessle.

Humberside Fire and Rescue Service and partner agencies have made significant progress throughout the night and brought the fire under control. Firefighters will remain onsite today, 25 November 2021, continuing to dampen down and to monitor the incident with partner agencies.

Jason Kirby, Director of People and Development at Humberside Fire and Rescue Service, said:

“The significant progress they [crews and partner agencies] have made by working throughout the night has meant there is now little disruption to those living and working in the area. We have reopened Priory Way and Saxon Way and local residents who were initially evacuated due to their close proximity to the incident, have been able to safely return home.”
