AN ‘INTENSE’ blaze at a Slinfold industrial site is being tackled this afternoon by firefighters (Friday February 2).

Crews were called to the scene at the Flint Group UK Ltd, on Maydwell Avenue just after 3.30pm.

A spokeswoman for West Sussex Fire and Rescue said the fire is ‘varnish’ related and was at risk of spreading to nearby ‘tankers’.

She added: “We believe the fire is quite intense”.

Four units from the service are currently in attendance as well as Sussex Police – who have closed the site entrance.

There are no reports of injury.
