Preston recycling centre engulfed by blaze
A large blaze has engulfed a recycling plant in Preston.
It broke out at Recycling Lives in Longridge Road shortly before 22:30 BST on Friday, sending up plumes of smoke.
The road was partially closed, as was the Guild Wheel cycle route, as the blaze spread to 50m (164ft) x 50m at its peak.
Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service (LFRS) said it was under control and the road had reopened. Recycling Lives said it was investigating the cause.
LFRS had advised residents who live nearby to continue to keep windows and doors closed as there was a lot of smoke in the area.
