Firefighters Tackle Tyre Fire In Salford

Borough: Salford

Incident Date: 08 May 2016

FIREFIGHTERS advised local residents to keep windows and doors shut as they tackle a fire on Duchy Road, Salford.

The blaze involved a significant quantity of tyres which created a large smoke plume over the Salford skyline, but firefighters soon got the fire under control.

Five fire engines attended with firefighters using two hose reel jets to fight the flames.

Watch Manager Dave Minto said: “We tackled a fire involving a large quantity of tyres in Salford and advised anyone who lives locally to keep their windows and doors shut and where possible try and avoid the area”.
