Brentwood Woodpile Fire Could Burn 'For Days'
Essex Fire Service says it could take several days to put out a fire involving 5,000 tons of wood.
Around 40 firefighters have been tackling the fire on Thoby Lane in Mountnessing.
They've been there since just before 7am on Monday morning.
A total of nine crews from Brentwood, Basildon, Rayleigh Weir, Ingatestone, Billericay and Southend have been involved.
They're working to contain the fire and protect surrounding risks.
Divisional Officer Matt Hughes said: "The fire is in a large pile consisting mainly of disused timber. Crews are working to contain the fire and protect surrounding risks. The site is surrounded by other industrial sites including scrapyards and agricultural equipment so we are working hard to contain the fire.
"Crews are likely to be here for several days dealing with this fire."
An aerial ladder platform is being used to douse the flames from above.
