Police have arrested three men on suspicion of arson after a fire at a wood recycling plant in the North-east.
Cleveland Police said they were treating the blaze at Jigsaw Recycling on Port Clarence Road, Middlesbrough, as suspicious. An investigation is ongoing.
The fire started on Saturday morning and was still being tackled by the Fire Service on Tuesday.
Up to 12,000 tonnes of reclaimed timber was involved in the blaze, which is just 50 m from local housing.
Cleveland Fire Service district manager for Hartlepool Dave Turton told MRW on Tuesday: “The fire is likely to continue for a couple more days, then we will have the possiblility of embers and ash to contend with.”
