fire crews tackle blaze at recycling centre
recycling centre was shut to the public on Monday afternoon (March
8th) after a fire broke out.
fire engines from Burnham-On-Sea were called to the Isleport Industrial
Estate at 4.15pm, as pictured here, after a large metal container
full of refuse was accidentally set alight.
spokesman Paul Slavin told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "Fire crews
used two hose reel jets to extinguish a fire in a 40 yard long
skip at the centre."
"Fortunately, the fire was fully contained and did not spread
but it did take some time to fully extinguish and damp down."
crews were on the scene until 5.30pm and the centre was closed
to the public throughout the afternoon. It is expected to be open
as normal on Tuesday.
