Huge fire breaks out at Cadbury Club as smoke seen across Birmingham

A huge fire has broken out at Birmingham’s famous Cadbury Club, sending thick plumes of smoke into the sky.

The social club is more than 35 years old for both Cadbury employees and the local community.

Eight crews from West Midlands Fire Service have rushed to tackle the blaze in Bournville while a number of homes in the area have been evacuated.

It is the second major fire in a week that the service has had to battle. Witnesses took to social media to share photos of the black cloud of smoke they could see from their homes.

One said: ‘Another huge fire in Birmingham, this time from the old Cadbury club apparently. This is the view from Stirchley, hope no one hurt!’

Another added: ‘Crying shame, the Cadbury Social club is on fire. So so sad, can see the smoke from ours.’
