Fire crews tackle the blaze

They have started the dampening down process at North West Recycling Limited at Kingmoor Park after fighting the blaze for several hours today.

Hose jets, a thermal imaging camera and heavy plant machinery are being used to check for any remaining hotspots.

Fire engines from Carlisle East and Carlisle West stations, together with crews from Brampton and Gretna and an aerial appliance from Carlisle, were called to the scene.

About one hundred square metres of mixed recycling was said to be well alight.

The fire was contained in one corner of the building. It is estimated that only about 20 per cent of the building was affected by the blaze, says the fire service.

The brigade was alerted at about 10.45am.
