Lancashire Telegraph: Blackburn recycling centre fire 'suspicious' Blackburn recycling centre fire 'suspicious'

A FIRE in a skip at a Blackburn recycling centre was ‘without a doubt suspicious’, firefighters said.

They were called to the centre in George Street West shortly after 8.30pm last night.

Two fire engines attended the scene so that crews had enough water to put the flames out.

The skip contained clothing and cardboard.

Crew manager Tom Mellor said: “We were there for around about 45 minutes.

“We needed extra appliances, extra personnel and quite a bit of water.

“It was without a doubt suspicious.”
