Stoney Street car park fire Nottingham

Fire crews from six stations across Nottingham have been dealing with a fire at a car park in the city centre.

Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service say six cars were on fire at Stoney Street car park in the Lace Market when they were called at 12.14pm.

 

Alex Lipinski, from West Bridgford, is an architect working near to the car park. He told Capital it was a scary sight. He said: "There were thick black plumes of smoke when I went outside to have a look. I could hear explosions with tyres popping."

Nottinghamshire Police say they are in attendance where a cordon is in place, meaning people cannot enter the car park. 

They say people living in flats above the car park must keep windows and doors closed.
