Fire cannot be extinguished until waste is removed

Here is a statement issued by the fire service on the Hunter tip fire today:

“West Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service have been conducting on-going firefighting operations at the abandoned Waste Site, Lockwood, Huddersfield since 9 August. As the fire developed, 5 appliances with crews and support from a High Volume Pump were used to bring the fire under control.

“The fire is now deeply seated within the waste pile and there are areas that we are unable to reach with our equipment due to the amount of accumulated waste.

“The Kirklees District Team are working closely with Kirklees Council and the Envirmonet Agency to develop a plan which involves the removal of waste to access the areas that continue to burn.

“We are currently in a monitoring phase with this incident and crews are ready to respond. Where necessary crews revisit the site and use water from local water mains to extinguish any flames when they become visible.

“The deep seated nature of this fire within the pile is such that we will only be able to fully extinguish it once the pile is separated and pulled apart. Previous experience tells us that this will only be done once the waste material is removed from site, until then it is likely that the fire will continue.”
