Fire on large forklift truck at Tees Port put out safely

A fire at PD Ports in Middlesbrough has been put out safely, with no injuries, Cleveland Fire Service said.

Crews were called to the site at Tees Port at about 5pm, to a rolling forklift truck, which was on fire.

Incident Commander Tony Suggitt said the crews were warned the containers around the truck may contain hazardous chemicals, but that turned out not to be the case.

Cleveland Police closed the roads around the site because of the danger of a large plume of smoke drifting away from the fire.
