SHARE:

Cumbria Fire and Rescue Service say that Firefighters from Carlisle West, along with Carlisle East, Lazonby, Penrith, Brampton, Wigton, Appleby and a Welfare Support  unit from Cockermouth, have been dealing with a blaze at a recycling centre near Southwaite.

A spokesperson said:

"At approximately 11.45pm appliances were mobilised to reports of an industrial premise on fire, near to Southwaite.

"In attendance, crews discovered that a recycling plant was well alight, with a large steel framed building, and various piles of recyclables on fire.

"Aerial Ladder Platform was utilised to provide a water tower to extinguish the blaze from a safe distance, while all other appliances provided us with water and support.

"The blaze is now under control, however crews are still on scene to extinguish flare ups, while the site owners pull apart the mounds of material for us to extinguish.

"We are expected to have a presence at the incident for most of the day, and water supplies in the area may be affected."
