With the latest lazy reporting from the OM this fire could be anywhere in Oxford, as they seem to class the Cowley Road anywhere from the Plain to the BMW plant!
At least they said "Oxford" this time to narrow it down to one of the two Cowley Roads inside the ring road.

Pretty awful journalism - whatever happened to 'who, what, where, when' and sub-editors with local knowledge appropriate to the area ehich the publication serves? If the Fire Brigade used such mediocre description, they'd never get to the fire, let alone put it out! Maybe time the Oxford Mail stopped playing 'musical chairs' with Staff and allowed both editorial and reporters time to gain local knowlege - not everything can be found by using Google or Google maps - and certainly not i-phones or US version of spellcheck!

As I remember there is Oxford Rd Cowley - and Cowley Road Oxford - the latter being going to the Plain. Howver - the article per se just said the fire was in Oxford - close enough! After all, only those involved really needed to know!
