A Huge Fire Tears Up the North London Waste Recycling Facility

Read Time:1 Minute, 2 Second

Hundreds of firemen are fighting a large fire at a north London waste recycling facility right now. Around 500 tonnes of mixed trash were consumed by the fire when it broke out early on Thursday morning in a single-story container on Nobel Road in Edmonton.

To put out the fire, the London Fire Brigade has sent out ten fire engines and about seventy firefighters. Huge, far-off plumes of black smoke that rise high into the sky have produced dramatic vistas. Social media users posted a video showing a huge column of smoke coming from the North Circular.

It has been recommended to nearby residents that they keep their windows and doors closed to avoid breathing in the thick smoke. The brigade’s drone team is offering an aerial view of the incident while firefighters battle the fire from above using a 32-meter ladder.

There will be major traffic delays along the A1055 as Nobel Road has been closed between Thornton Road and Kynoch Road as a precaution. Crews from Edmonton, Enfield, Chingford, and other neighboring fire stations are aggressively tackling the fire, which started at 3:33 in the morning.

Investigations are still ongoing, and the cause of the fire is yet unknown.
