Two fire engines from Leamington were sent to St Marys Road after reports of a fire in a derelict building at around 8.50pm.

Crews confirmed a small fire within a outbuilding and used two breathing apparatus and a hose reel to put out the blaze.

Investigations are currently ongoing to ascertain the cause of the fire, a police spokesman said.

Earlier at around 1.10pm, Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service was altered after reports of a portable building on fire in compound on Leicester Road in Bubbenhall.

Initially one fire engine from Leamington was sent but they requested further assistance so another from the same station joined them.

Half of the Portacabin was destroyed by the fire but crews used hose reels and drag forks to extinguish it.
