Firefighters Remain At Norfolk Waste Timber Fire


Firefighters remain at the scene of a major waste timber fire that started in West Norfolk over the weekend.

Up to 50 crew members have been at the site at Common Lane in North Runcton, near King’s Lynn since just before midday on Saturday, January 21.

Forty thousand cubic metres of scrap timber were been alight. Crews are continuing to dampen down.

A spokesman for Norfolk fire service said that the cause of the fire had not yet been established.

Fire-fighters quickly got the blaze under control but it is expected to take several days to extinguish completely.

The fire service is advising residents of North Runcton and nearby West Winch to keep doors and windows shut.
