Goole Fire: Humberside Fire and Rescue remain at site of large scrapyard blaze

Humberside Fire and Rescue Service are investigating the cause of a large fire at a scrapyard in Goole which started on Sunday evening.

The service has said that large amounts of smoke are being produced by the fire in Old Goole and that residents in the area are advised to keep their doors and windows closed.

Humberside Police are also in attendance at the fire and are asking people to avoid Cottingham Street, which has been closed as a result of the blaze.

Fire crews working on the fire said that they will be there for "some time".

Station manager Richard Gibson said: "It was quite a complex incident due to the size and the scale of the site, we have had to draw water from Goole Docks and we have had a number of firefighters and appliances to deal with this incident."

A drone has been sent up by firefighters this morning, with police asking members of the public to keep drones away from the site.

The Environment Agency have also tweeted to say that they are working with the fire service to "minimise the impact on the public and environment".

The agency are working alongside the fire service to ensure that no harmful chemicals leak into the area's water supply.
