Waste fire burns at Poole industrial estate
A large fire has broken out on an industrial estate in Poole.
About 75 firefighters were tackling the blaze at W&S Recycling on the Nuffield Industrial Estate, which took hold shortly after midday.
People were evacuated from nearby businesses after a unit containing 600 tonnes of waste caught fire.
A large plume of smoke was visible miles from the scene and police have advised residents to keep their windows shut. No injuries have been reported.
Group manager Richard Coleman, from Dorset fire service, said the cause was unknown but "early thoughts" were that it could have been a disposable barbecue which had not been properly put out.
The fire had been brought under control and the incident was expected to be over before 17:00 BST, Mr Coleman added.
