Llandow business park fire finally extinguished

Several fire crews were deployed when the blaze originally broke out

The fire burning at the Vale Business Park in Llandow is now out.

It began on November 26. A spokesperson for South Wales Fire & Rescue Service says efforts to tackle the blaze were hampered by the construction of the building - a former aircraft hangar built to withstand bombardment.

Crews make 'steady progress' in tackling Llandow fire

Firefighters are continuing to tackle a 'challenging and complex' blaze, which broke out at the Vale Business Park in Llandow on November 26th.

South Wales Fire & Rescue Service say the operation has been prolonged by the nature and volume of the burning material within the building, the strength of the building structure, challenging site conditions and the need to protect the environment.

Steady progress is being made and South Wales Fire and Rescue Service, Natural Resources Wales and the recycling company which owns the site, Site Serv, are working closely together to ensure that the fire is extinguished as rapidly as the constraints allow.

The organisations involved have expressed their thanks to the local community and businesses for their continuing patience and support.

Health authorities say the risk to public health associated with the fire is low.

– South Wales Fire & Rescue Service spokesperson

People living nearby are advised to minimise their exposure to smoke arising from the fire - particularly those with pre-existing respiratory conditions.

Advice includes staying indoors where possible and keeping doors and windows closed.

At its height almost 90 personnel were involved in the operation at Llandow.

Video: Fire crews could be on site for days

Richard Matheson from the South Wales Fire and Rescue Service suggests that fire crews dealing with the blaze at the Vale Business Park may be on site for days.

The "deep-seated" fire involves a large amount of mixed recycling materials.

One of the owners of a soft furnishings business in the area was notified about the fire by one of her employees after they saw smoke from one of the buildings nearby.

Pam Owen, owner of Pam Owen's Soft Furnishings, has been in business for more than 25 years and is worried about the fire spreading.
