Fire crews tackle CCC’s Kirkby waste site blaze

Fire crews were called out to tackle a fire at a waste transfer and recycling facility run by CCC Waste Management at Simonswood Industrial Park in Kirkby, which broke out late last night.

The fire was contained within a building housing a mixture of household recyclable waste. Firefighters managed to contain the fire to ensure that surrounding businesses were not affected. However, residents living nearby were advised to keep windows and doors closed due to the smoke plume created by the fire.
