Chief Fire officer Neil Odbin from Hampshire Fire and Rescue has already revealed that the fire has spread into a second building on the site and efforts to extinguish the blaze are hampered due to the internals and dangers within the multi-million-pound warehouse.

The group's shares dropped 6% as it said it would see a fall in sales growth until it can shift operations to other warehouses following the fire at its Andover site, which took more than 24 hours to get under control.

This comes after a risk of a toxic release or a large cylinder explosion was on the cards.

Some homes 1.6km away from the site were due to be evacuated depending to the wind direction, Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service said.

"We are working extremely closely with all of our partners to keep the public safe". "Unfortunately the fire which started yesterday. was not contained as we believed, and last night expanded", Ocado said in a statement.

According to the spokesperson, there has been substantial damage to the Andover building and its contents. Four firefighters have been treated for minor smoke inhalation. Makes you truly appreciate the courageous men and women of the Fire Service!




"Once we have had time to assess the damage and prepare a plan to return the CFC (customer fulfilment centre) to operation we will update further as appropriate", Ocado said.

Ocado stressed it had comprehensive insurance for the property, stock and equipment and for business interruption losses.

The Andover complex had been providing about 10 percent of the firm's capacity in Britain, using robotic technology that it is selling to grocery retailers around the world.

The full financial impact of the inferno is not yet known, but Ocado has increased capacity at its three other main United Kingdom sites in a bid to avoid disruption for customers.

Picture: Deliverance - a major fire at Ocasdo's robot operated Andover warehouse saw no injuries.apart to the online grocer's share price which fell six per cent on the news.
