This case involved a manufacturer of vehicle parts which had occupied a large, 20m high, single-storey, steel-framed industrial property for a number of years. During a normal operational day a small oil fire occurred during which a considerable quantity of smoke was released into the building. The Insurers of the building subsequently received a claim for damages arising directly from the fire and also indirectly from the contamination of both the equipment at ground level and the extensive steelwork that supported the roof.
