Firefighters are tackling a large blaze at a factory in Barwell.
Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service received a 999 call at 3pm today and crews arrived to find the two-storey factory well ablaze.
Several nearby streets are closed due to the fire, including Kingsfield Road, Arthur Street and King Street.
A few nearby homes have had to be evacuated and some properies are without power as the fire has affected gas and electricity supplies.
Nearby residents have been told to keep their doors and windows closed.
It was initially thought people may be trapped inside the building, but all people there have now been accounted for.
Six fire crews are currently tackling the flames which are affecting all parts of the 20m by 70m structure. Earlier, smoke could be seen from as far away as Narborough.
The cause of the blaze has not yet been established.
