Firefighters Tackle Tyre Blaze
It is believed that arson was the cause of a fire on wasteland in Shotton, Flintshire, North Wales, which destroyed more than 200 tyres. Two fire engines and a foam tender attended the blaze, and it took “dozens of firefighters” over two hours to extinguish. A plume of thick black smoke was visible from several miles away. Nobody was hurt in the incident and local police are asking anyone with information on how the blaze started to come forward.
