Fire service: Port of Tyne fire was 'particularly challenging'

Fire crews will remain at the Port of Tyne for 'some time' in case the large fire re-ignites.

Around 50 firefighters were called to the site at South Shields at around 3pm today to reports of a fire in a conveyor transfer tower.

The tower is used to transfer wood pellet from the main storage facility to the rail loading silo.

At the peak of the fire, crews applied six cooling water jets to dampen down the fire.

It was a particularly challenging incident and we had to re-assess how we tackled the fire due to the difficult conditions our fire crews faced.

Fire crews who were mobilised from all over Tyne and Wear should be praised for their professionalism and swift actions which helped to get the fire under control quickly.

Firefighters will remain on-site for some time to ensure the fire does not re-ignite and we would like to thank the Port of Tyne for their assistance.
