08.02.23 – Fire at Waste Plant in SOT, SCC ‘Multiply’ Initiative
Written by Hitmix Local News on 7 February 2023
Firefighters have extinguished two separate fires involving 35-tonnes of waste at a recycling plant in Stoke-on-Trent.
Just after 2 o’clock on Saturday morning Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service received reports that an industrial building containing waste was alight in Burslem.
By 5.50am, the fire had been brought under control without causing any injuries to anyone in the area.
Then, at 8.15, crews began tackling a second fire involving a waste bay. It was quickly extinguished and firefighters remained at the scene to check if any hotspots were left. The cause is currently being treated as unexplained while inquiries continue.
