Crews from around the County and beyond work together to tackle fire in Clun

At 8:53pm last night, crews from around the county were mobilised to a fire in a commercial scrap yard at Five Turnings, Clun.

At its peak we had 8 appliances and specialist units on scene as the fire spread through several hundred tonnes of scrap.

With assistance from Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service, Gwasanaeth Tân ac Achub CGC / Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue, SFRS officers and our fantastic Fire Control; crews worked tirelessly to bring the fire under control.

We still have a presence on-scene to continue damping down the smoldering remains and expect to be there for at least the next 24 hours.
