Firefighters re-visited a quarry today to check on a building which was badly damaged in a fire. The crews returned to Croft Quarry in Marions Way, off Coventry Road, Croft, after the fire on Friday night. At the height of the blaze up to 50 firefighters from 10 crews from around the county tackled the flames. A member of the public raised the alarm at 6.48pm on Friday after seeing smoke coming from the 45m high building. Smoke from the fire, which started on a conveyor belt, could reportedly been seen from miles away. Firefighters had the fire under control by 3.30am on Saturday but have revisited the site over the weekend to check for hot spots. The cause of the blaze is being investigated. No-one was hurt in the incident. Firefighters are to meet staff from the quarry at the site tomorow. It is believed the building is so badly damaged that it will have to be demolished.
