A major tyre blaze has destroyed a storage facility in Herefordshire. Fire engines were called to the Wyvern Tyres warehouse on Monday evening, and it took fire crews almost five hours to get the blaze under control. The fire caused disruption to train services between Shrewsbury, Hereford and Worcester, which only returned to normal the following day.
Worryingly, this is the second recent incidence of fire in tyre storage facilities. As well as causing disruption to local transport links, there are serious implications for health and environmental concerns. Local fire authorities state that it is unlikely that they will be able to ascertain the cause of the blaze.
