Crews Tackle Fire In Building Full Of Waste
Firefighters spent over 24 hours tackling a massive fire at a recycling centre near Chelmsford.
Around 30 firefighters were called to the building at Mid Essex Gravel Pit in Essex Regiment Way, Little Waltham just after five o'clock on Friday morning (August 12).
They were still there on Saturday morning damping down.
A large building, which was thought to contain about 1,000 tonnes of rubbish, caught light.
The cause of the fire is unknown at this stage. Essex Fire Service and the police will carry out an investigation.
Station Officer Simon Dedman-Incident Commander said: "When crews arrived at the scene the fire was well developed and the site was secure, once crews gained access they tackled the fire in a building measuring 80 x 40 metres which is used to store 1000 tonnes of recycling waste.''
