We were alerted to a property fire at 8:20pm on Wednesday 13th March. 

5 fire appliances including the Incident Support Unit were mobilised to The Curry House on Mardol from Shrewsbury, Telford Central and Wem. 3 fire officers and West Mercia Police were also in attendance.

The fire which is believed to have started in the kitchen was put out by crews wearing breathing apparatus using hose reel jets.

Group Manager Scott Bishop, who attended the incident, said:

"Thanks to the swift action of the staff at The Curry House and the rapid response of our crews, this fire was prevented from developing into something more serious. SFRS crews worked tirelessly throughout the night to bring the incident to a close.

Thank you to the residents of Shrewsbury for their patience whilst roads were closed to allow us access, and to nearby businesses for offering food and drinks to our firefighters throughout the night."

All roads have now re-opened as the fire investigation continues.
