Residents for miles around Maisemore saw puffs of smoke rising last night, Monday 19th July after a fire engulfed a few vehicles at Overton Farm, the site on which Complete Utilities runs from.
Complete Utilities featured at number 42 of Punchline's top 100 businesses in the county. They install utilities for housing companies such as mains water pipes and the new 5G network. Since starting out in 1991, Complete Utilities have gone from a workforce of 55 to 150 this year.
3 fire engines were called out to the blaze at 8.06 PM, which thankfully involved no people. In a statement, Gloucestershire County Council, who oversee the fire service said: "GFRS were called to Complete Utilities, Overton Farm at 20.06 this evening.
"They are attending vehicle fires (lorries and vans) on site. We have three fire engines in attendance and one water carrier."
The Gloucestershire Fire Service advised over twitter last night to avoid the area and close doors and windows if people live nearby and could smell smoke.
An update from the Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service revealed that it was four lorries and two vans that caught fire. The last fire engine left the scene at 5:17 am on Tuesday 20th July.
