Heartbreak for sisters as their business fights the flames

The owners of a Welsh based business, Spectrum Collections, woke up on Sunday to discover that it had been hit by a devastating fire. Sophie and Hannah Pyecroft started their make-up brush and accessories concept in the garage of their family home in Barry, Wales. Interest quickly grew in their cruelty free and rainbow coloured make-up brushes, unicorn tear sponges, shell shaped bags and accessories in which they promised that ‘no unicorns had been harmed’ and they now sell to a world-wide clientele.
The fire, which hit the company’s Essex warehouse, was battled by over 100 fire fighters, and was described as ‘completely alight’ with flames also burning lorries outside the warehouse.
The inferno threatened to spread to a neighbouring industrial unit and officers worked through the night to contain the blaze.
Fifteen fire engines and specialist appliances, such as aerial ladder platforms to vary the angle of fire hoses, were at the scene after the first emergency call was made at 12.21am on Sunday.
Businesswomen Sophie and Hannah vowed to fight on however, from their office location in Barry. Whilst the collections are being labelled as ‘sold out’ online, they are expecting another delivery of the vegan friendly synthetic brushes and the site will be back up and running soon.
