FIREFIGHTERS were today tackling a severe blaze at an industrial estate on the outskirts of Watlington.

The fire at Lys Mill started late last night and was not expected to be extinguished until this evening.

About 60 firefighters from Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Berkshire were attending and they faced an added hazard from acetylene, propane and oxygen cylinders stored in some of the buildings.

The road off Howe Hill which leads up to Lys Mill was closed.

Vincent Schofield, whose workshop is located on the industrial estate, said his landlord telephoned him this morning to warn him about the fire.

?I don?t know if we have been affected,? he said. ?I?m hoping I can get back in quickly because I have lots of work to do.?
