Building fire - Waterbeach - South Cambs

Two crews from Cambridge were called to a fire in a recycling shed at the Amey Cespa site in Ely Road.

Firefighters were called to the shed containing 30 tonnes of recyclables where two tonnes of it was on fire.

Diggers were used to help drag burning paper and cardboard out of the shed whilst firefighters wearing dust masks used two hose reels to extinguish the fire and a thermal imaging camera to identify any hot spots.

Crews returned to their stations by 6.25pm but returned later that evening to inspect the site.

Cause of the fire was accidental.
