Crews were called to a large rubbish fire at the recycling centre. On arrival crews requested the aerial ladder platform and a fourth appliance. Crews got to work with hose reel jets and awaited all resources to attend.
Crews then began using 4 compressed air foam jets on the fire, with local hydrants being used for water. Steady progress was made tackling the blaze.
At 18:11, the incident was scaled back to 2 fire appliances and the aerial appliance.
At 19:20 hrs, the message was passed to say the incident was in its closing stages. This was confirmed as one lorry trailer and 4 tonnes of mixed recycling waste involved in fire, extinguished by crews. The cause of the fire was deemed as accidental ignition.
