Fire crews tackling plastic recycling centre blaze in Sandycroft

Crews are in attendance at a fire in Factory Road, Sandycroft. North Wales Fire and Rescue Service received the call at 3.14pm today (Tuesday 1st May). Crews from Wrexham, Flint, Buckley, Mold, Llandudno, Deeside and Wrexham, Rhyl, Johnstown and Ruthin are dealing with a fire involving plastics. Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus are using hose reels and main jets to deal with the fire. Members of the public are asked to keep away from the incident and all doors and windows in the area to remain close. The road is closed between Chemistry Lane and Factory Lane. Darren Jones from North Wales Fire and Rescue Service, said: “Visibility is poor on the A494 and the M56 due to the think smoke coming from this incident. We are asking people travelling on those roads to reduce their speed. Please stay away from the riverside cycle path in Sandycroft this evening if you are cycling or walking your dog. Water supplies could be affected in this area this evening whilst firefighters are tackling this fire.” The incident is still on-going.
