Big fire at yard near homes
An industrial unit in South Wales has caught fire and homes have been evacuated, authorities said.
The blaze at a yard in Pontypridd broke out at around 7pm yesterday with witnesses saying they heard explosions.
Videos posted online showed thick torrents of black smoke billowing up from the scene near Pentrebach Road.
John Richards, an IT worker who lives around a mile away, said he heard between six and 12 explosions coming from the site.
