Firefighters tackle huge tyre fire in Grimethorpe. Firefighters were called out to tackle a large fire at a tyre recycling premise on Springvale Road, Grimethorpe in the early hours of this morning. Four fire engines, along with an Aeriel Ladder Platform and a Command Support Unit, were called to the incident at 5am this morning. A large amount of tyres were well alight when crews arrived. Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used main jets to tackle the blaze and worked hard to prevent the fire from spreading to nearby premises. Fire crews advised members of the public to keep their doors and windows closed due to the large amount of smoke in the area. An investigation into the cause of the fire is being launched. -> Read more at Barnsley News & Sport
