Five fire engines were sent to deal with the incident at the 12,000 square foot factory run by QS Powder Coaters Ltd.

Crews from Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service were called just after noon on Thursday, June 6.

"There was a fire at a commercial bulding on Nailsworth Mills Estate, Avening Rd, Nailsworth. Crews had brought the fire under control by 2pm and left the scene by 2.22pm," said a spokesman for the fire service.

Six breathing apparatus and one hose jet was used.
