Fire service tape has cordoned off the surrounding area as emergency crews continue to tackle the fire.

Uniformed fire wardens were pictured hosing the building hours after the blaze, which resulted in nearby residents being evacuated.

It is understood that evacuated residents have since returned to their homes.
