FIREFIGHTERS continued to tackle a large blaze at a recycling centre in Wrexham overnight. 

Several crews were called to the incident at Bryn Lane recycling centre on Wrexham Industrial Estate on Monday morning. 

A North Wales Fire and Rescue Service spokesperson said on Tuesday that the blaze involved 400 tonnes of general waste. 

The fire was extinguished by 6.30am today, and the cause has been deemed accidental. 

The fire was contained to a unit containing waste from Wrexham Council's collections. The household waste and recycling centre remained open on Monday. 


A Wrexham Council spokesperson said on Monday: "We can confirm that there was a fire this morning contained to one area of the Bryn Lane site. No personnel were involved and there were no injuries.

"North Wales Fire and Rescue service are in attendance, and the fire is contained to one small area. Our household recycling centre is open as usual.

"Arrangements to accommodate all waste collections are in hand and we expect little or no disruption to today’s collections. However, our refuse vehicles will be slightly delayed when they attend site to dispose of waste."
