On Sunday 5th January 2017 at 19:25, Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service attended a fire at Bostik Ltd, Common Lane, Stafford. The building is 20,000sqm. The incident involved a chemical vapour fire over an industrial adhesive filling process. The process uses 6641 coating adhesive which contains 35% Toluene. The cause of the fire is believed to be the vapour ignited by static electricity produced by the filling process.

 

The area of the building where  fire was located was two storey and was covered by a sprinkler system. The sprinkler system was unique due to the risk, operating for 1 minute using foam then changed to water. The sprinkler system contained the fire to the machine of origin.

 

Two appliances attended but did not use any fire fighting media as the sprinkler and on site fire team had extinguished the fire. One employee was taken to hospital for precautionary check due to inhaling chemical vapour.
