Thick Smoke Pours From Huge Tire Fire in England

Around 1,000 tires caught fire at an industrial site in Ranskill in Nottinghamshire, England, on August 5, according to the local fire department.

Footage by Simon Lane shows a large plume of smoke, which the fire department said could be seen from surrounding areas.

People were warned to avoid the area as firefighters worked to extinguish the blaze, which broke out before 10:30 am. “Large quantities of smoke are issuing from the scene,” the fire department said.

Two people were treated for smoke inhalation, the fire department said.

The cause of the fire had not been confirmed at the time of writing. Credit: Simon Lane via Storyful
