Police asked nearby residents to shelter-in-place after fire broke out Sunday night at a plastics recycling plant in Cleveland, England.
“Officers do not believe there is a risk to the public but would advise people living in the surrounding area to keep their windows and doors closed whilst the fire is being dealt with,” the Cleveland Police posted to Facebook.
At about 10:15 p.m., emergency services were called to the scene. The Cleveland Fire Brigade responded with eight fire trucks from Coulby Newham, Grangetown, Guisborough, Loftus, Middlesbrough, Redcar, Saltburn and Skelton, the newspaper Northern Echo reports.
The fire involved compacted plastic. Firefighters used a ground monitor and water relay to battle the blaze.
Flames and thick black smoke were still visible from the scene into the early hours Monday.
