Wrexham recycling blaze tackled by six crews

A fire at a recycling centre building on Wrexham Industrial Park has been put out by six fire crews.

The building was evacuated and no injuries were reported.

North Wales Fire and Rescue Services said the fire was confined to a conveyer belt being built inside the building. An investigation into the cause of the blaze has begun.

Three crews from Wrexham, as well as crews from Buckley, Deeside and Johnstown attended the incident.

FCC Environment said the fire had been at its new Mechanical Biological Treatment plant currently being built at its Bryn Lane site.

Paul Stokes from the firm said: "Fire crews have now fully extinguished the fire and there are no reported injuries."

He said there were not thought to be any environmental issues as there was no waste within the facility at the time but that the appropriate authorities had been informed.

"FCC Environment takes health and safety very seriously. We will be conducting an investigation into the cause of the fire and will implement any necessary measures to ensure a similar situation does not occur in the future," he added.
