A large fire broke out at a Recycling Lives scrapyard in Burnley last Saturday, April 23.
The fire involved hundreds of vehicles, which Lancashire Fire and Rescue estimated to be around 200 tonnes. Plumes of black smoke caused problems for people driving on the nearby M6.
Around 70 firefighters, two aerial platforms and 10 fire engines attended the incident, including a special high pressure unit from Burnley.
CEO of Recycling Lives Gerry Marshall thanked the fire service and added: “We are working with Lancashire Fire and Rescue to investigate the cause of the fire”.
The site seems prone to combustion, having previously suffered fires in 2015 and 2019.
