Cumbrian fire crews tackle large blaze involving tyres

Householders were urged to close their doors and windows as firefighters tackled a large blaze.

Three fire crews - two from Penrith and one from Shap - fought the fire, which involved about 500 tyres, at Great Strickland.

The service said the fire was releasing a lot of black smoke.

Fire crews were called to the farm yard off the C3055 just after 10.30am.

A spokeswoman for Cumbria Fire and Rescue Service said: “Firefighters did some damping down and then left the scene.

“They used foam and hose reel jets to put out the fire.”
