Firefighters fight blaze in scrap yard fire in Grays

ESSEX Firefighters tackled a fire in a yard involving a lorry in Askews Farm Lane, Grays in the early hours of Boxing Day.

Poor water supply meant crews used a water shuttle – in which appliances take it in turns to leave the scene of the fire to replenish the water supply in their tanks – to ensure they had enough water to tackle the blaze.

Using three hose reel jets crews had extinguished the fire by 04:48hrs.
