Blaze hits Thirsk recycling centre

Around 45 firefighters were dispatched to tackle a blaze that broke out at Todd Waste Management in Thirsk, North Yorkshire in the early hours of Monday morning.

At the fire’s peak, there were crews from seven fire stations - Thirsk, Northallerton, Easingwold, Boroughbridge, Harrogate, Bedale and Ripon – at the scene as well as a high volume pump and an aerial ladder platform.

Fire crews are still on site, although the incident has been downgraded and now just two fire engines remain on site.

According to the BBC, the site was hit by another fire in May 2011.
