A spokesman for Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service said: “Upon arrival the crew from Corby found smoke issuing from a fibreglass box outside a business premises.

“Two firefighters in breathing apparatus used a hose reel jet to extinguish the flames and used a 45 ml jet to dampen the box down.
