Crews from across the region were called-in to deal with the fire this morning, which engulfed a storage area on River Lane, Saltney.

By midday the operation, which had been carried out by crews across the region, had been scaled down as crews gained control of the blaze.

A  North Wales Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said: "We were called at around 8.08 this morning to reports of the fire on River Lane in Saltney."

Two crews from Deeside and one from Flint attended, as well as crews from Chester, Llandudno and Wrexham.
