3 fire appliances – 2 from Newport and 1 from Ryde – are in attendance off Taylor Road, where a blaze has broke out at the rear of a derelict building.
Crews were alerted to the developing incident at around 20:00 when local security company Vectis Group Security discovered the fire, which at this stage is thought to have been started maliciously.
Firefighters have entered the building by forcible means and are using breathing apparatus and a hose reel to contain and extinguish the fire.
1 appliance from Cowes is standing by at Newport to provide immediate fire cover for the Newport area.
UPDATE – The incident has now been brought to a close.
