At 11.00pm on Friday 2 June, we were called to reports of a fire in a scrap yard on Cheston Road, Aston, in Birmingham.
Initially, crews from Aston and Ward End were mobilised. However, due the to number of calls and information from callers, our Fire Control team mobilised additional fire crews to the incident.
Currently, a total of ten fire crews are in attendance, supported by a hydraulic aerial platform and our high-volume pumping unit.
The incident involves a large quantity of scrap metal alight within scrap yard compound. Our crews are working to contain the blaze.
Currently, no casualties are reported.
Due to the smell of smoke in and around the area, we recommend keeping doors and windows closed as a precaution.
