Shropshire go-karting building destroyed in fire

  • 8-5-2015

A go-karting venue in Shropshire has been completely destroyed in a blaze.

Fire crews were called to Rednal Karting, on an industrial estate near Haughton, just after midnight on Saturday.

It is believed gas cylinders were involved, but the exact circumstances of the fire are not yet known, Shropshire Fire Service said.

The fire was brought under control by 04:15 BST, and no other property was affected.

The owner, Mike Rees, said he had lost nearly everything apart from six go-karts.

"We will get some temporary buildings up, get some go-karts from our suppliers in London and we'll be hoping to operate in a week to 10 days", he said.

Neil Griffiths, from Shropshire Fire Service, said attempts were made to remove the cylinders from the building, but the blaze was too strong for firefighters to get inside.
