Lorry fire - Dogsthorpe - Peterborough

Crews from Dogsthorpe, Stanground and a water carrier from Ramsey were called to a lorry fire in Welland Road, Dogsthorpe.

An articulated lorry was on fire at a landfill site and firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used a hose reel to extinguish it. The fire spread to involve some of the landfill material and crews also extinguished this and will return to inspect the scene later.

They returned to their stations by 2.55pm.

The cause of the fire was accidental, by mechanical.
