Emergency services have left a Lincolnshire recycling facility one week after 4,000 bales of mixed household waste and shredded carpets went up in flames.
At the height of the blaze, 12 appliances, a water carrier, a hose layer and a high-volume pump were being used to fight the fire at Mid UK’s Barkston Heath warehousing complex in Ancaster.
Local roads were closed and nearby residents were initially advised to keep windows closed because of the thick black smoke.
A Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue spokeswoman said: “There are now no fire appliances left on-site, but we are taking a watching brief and revisiting every couple of hours.
“We have created a number of fire breaks and put out as much of the fire as we can. The rest will burn itself out.
“Mid UK has fire marshalls and security guards on-site. If we are needed to go back then we will.”
