A fire has broken out at a waste facility in South Wales.
Environment Agency officers were called to investigate the blaze at Amber Services Waste Management near Llanbradach on Monday.
About 200 tonnes of mixed construction waste caught fire at the facility at Dyffryn Business Park, Ystrad Mynach.
South Wales Fire and Rescue Service retained most of the water used to tackle the blaze on site through interceptors and drainage systems. A small amount may have entered the River Rhymney, but so far this has had minimal impact on the river.
An Environment Agency Wales spokesman said: “Our officers are currently assessing the environmental impact of the fire, and we are working with South Wales Fire and Rescue Service to ensure that impact on the local environment is minimised.
“Amber Services Waste Management is a regulated site and we will take any action as necessary to prevent it happening again.”
The fire comes days after the firm was fined £112,000 after a yard foreman was crushed to death.
Newport man Norman Mayne was 56 when he died after being trapped between a container and a skip at the Dyffryn Business Park site on 25 June 2008.
