On arrival crews confirmed there had been a fire in the back of a refuse lorry that had been extinguished using a garden hose, but was still smoking. Crews used 2 Breathing Apparatus, 1 Hose Reel Jet and drag forks to help fully extinguish the fire. Crews then followed the lorry back to its depot so the contents could be emptied to make sure the fire was fully extinguished.
