Crews called to city centre health club fire.

FIRE crews were called out to a blaze at a health club in Birmingham's Brindleyplace on Friday night.

Four crews using breathing apparatus and hose jets tackled the blaze at the popular nightlife spot off Broad Street.

Police advised the public to avoid the area while the incident was brought under control.

Two crews from Ladywood and one each from Highgate and Aston arrived at the scene at 11.20pm.

They used eight breathing apparatus and two main hose jets to tackle the blaze, thought to have broken out in a dry cleaning room at Bannatyne Health Club.

A road was shut down and a nearby car park was inaccessible as the firefighters extinguished the blaze and stayed to dampen down the scene.

The city centre police team praised the fire service after the blaze was brought under control. No one at the health club was available for comment this morning.
