Firemen fought for three hours early on Wednesday morning to control a blaze at the Mitcham sweet factory of Randalls (Wimbledon) Limited.

The fire started just after 2 a.m. when sacks of peanut husks stored in the yard of the firm’s premises at Upper Green East overheated and caught alight.

The flames quickly spread to the roof timbers of the toilet block, against which the husks were stacked.

A storeroom of the adjacent South Suburban Co-operative shop also caught alight and roof timbers and a door were burned. Some stock was damaged by smoke.

A spokesman for Randalls said that it was too early to estimate the cost of the damage.
