One crew was still on scene this morning damping down and checking for any hotspots.

The full extent of the damage is not yet known.

Earnley Concourse is a conference centre which was once proposed as a place to house 200 asylum seekers.

But in the midst of major opposition the proposals were withdrawn back in 2015.
