Ten fire crews fight to contain Blackbutt inferno
TEN fire crews raced out to the scene of a rubbish inferno at the Blackbutt waste and recycling facility last night.
A Queensland Fire and Emergency spokeswoman said the blaze began around 7.30pm on Farrington Rd, after it was reported a large number of tyres were on fire.
“We had ten crews go out to that one, and it was extinguished around 8.20pm,” she said.
“Several crews stayed until 9.30pm as a precaution in case it reignited, and will be returning this morning as another safety measure.”
No one was transported to hospital.
