Mys­tery over cause of large fire

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

Mys­tery sur­rounds the cause of a large fire on land in Peter­bor­ough which sent large plumes of thick black smoke into the air. A num­ber of res­i­dents re­ported see­ing a thick cloud of smoke com­ing from the north of the city at about 1.30pm on Tues­day. The smoke could be seen for miles across Peter­bor­ough.A num­ber of fire crews from Dogsthorpe, March and Ram­sey were all on the scene to tackle the flames - but the cause of the fire has not been iden­ti­fied. A spokes­woman for Cam­bridgeshire Fire and Res­cue said crews were at the scene for nearly two hours on one of the hottest days of the year. She said: “Crews were called at 1.30pm to Nor­wood Lane, Pas­ton. “They ar­rived to find a large fire made up of waste and tyres.” Fire­fight­ers used hose reels to ex­tin­guish it and re­turned to their sta­tions by 3.10pm.
