Fire involving around 100 tonnes of mixed metal

Westpoint, Gatehouse Way, Aylesbury

Two appliances and crews from Aylesbury and one from Amersham attended, along with two officers.

A large fire involving approximately 100 tonnes of mixed metal, destined for recycling, was causing smoke in the area.

The firefighters used:

  • Two hose reel jets
  • Four main jets
  • Two ground monitors
  • A thermal imaging camera

On-site machinery was also used to help spread the pile so the firefighters could turn over and damp down. Firefighters carried out regular checks on the scene over night, before handing the scene back to the site manager shortly after 6am on Sunday 29 May.

Thames Valley Police also attended the incident.
