It's business as usual despite fire damage at Emmaus Gloucester superstore

Despite being hit by a fire at one of their Gloucester shops overnight, homelessness charity Emmaus have reiterated that they are open for business as normal.

In a social media post, the charity said that the blaze broke out in a cabin behind their Chequers Road superstore and that damage to donated goods had occurred but nobody had been hurt.

They praised the work of Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue who attended the scene and said that the fire had been successfully extinguished.

The charity said: "There has been a fire at our Chequers Road shop in Gloucester which has now been dealt with.

"No one has been injured and we would like to thank the emergency services for their response and help during this incident.

"The fire broke out behind our shop where we have cabins to sort through stock. The fire has resulted in the loss of a lot of clothing and bric-a-brac donations.

"However, we would like to let everyone know that we are open as usual, so please do stop by if you were planning on doing so!"
