Firefighters are dealing with a fire on an industrial estate off Ferry
Lane in #Rainham.
Around 80 firefighters are dealing with a fire on an industrial estate off Ferry Lane in Rainham, Havering.
The blaze is very visible and Brigade 999 control officers took around 15 calls to the fire.
Station Manger Keith Carmichael who is at the scene said:
“A large pile of metal and plastic is alight but the fire is outside rather than in any of the industrial units and we are ensuring it doesn’t spread. While the fire is causing a lot of a smoke, it’s a still night so the plume is not drifting and the industrial estate is not close to any residential areas. We expect to be at the scene for some time.”
Twelve fire engines are tackling the fire from stations including Wennington, Barking and Hornchurch fire stations.
