Blaze involved 400 tonnes of waste
FIREFIGHTERS battled a fire involving more than 400 tonnes of decomposed green waste.
A crew was called to Raeburn Road South in Ipswich shortly after 7.30pm after receiving reports of a blaze which had spread across five square metres.
Shortly after arriving, firefighters requested further assistance and two crews worked to isolate the fire.
A spokesperson for the fire service said that the request was for extra “personnel and water”.
The blaze is believed to be on the Anglian Water Sewage site, and on site workmen assisted crews by digging out the heap.
