Wilton UK Wood Recycling plant fire still burning after one week

  • 12-30-2013

A major fire at a wood recycling plant on Teesside is still burning one week after the blaze broke out.

The fire began on 23 December in a stack of wood at the UK Wood Recycling plant at the Wilton site near Redcar.

Cleveland Fire Brigade is now trying to disperse the burning wood to extinguish the fire.

Dave Turton from the brigade, said local residents should shut windows and doors to avoid the "increased" amount of smoke.

Mr Turton said fire crews expect to be at the site for "some considerable time".

An investigation into the cause of the fire will not begin until the fire has been fully extinguished.
