Scrap vehicles and tyres destroyed in Ilkeston fire

About 20 vehicles have been destroyed in a fire at a scrap yard in Derbyshire, a Derbyshire Fire & Rescue spokesman has said.

Fire crews were called to Alsworth Road in Ilkeston on Saturday morning where they found the scrap vehicles and hundreds of tyres alight.

Two fire engines were sent to tackle the blaze. No-one was injured in the fire, the spokesman said.

An investigation is under way to establish the cause of the fire.
