Over 100 firefighters are battling a massive metal fire, with residents being advised to close their windows.
A large number of firefighters are battling a fire that has forced residents to close their doors and windows for their own safety.
On Saturday around 7.20 p.m., a massive "metal fire" broke out at an industrial premises on Harrimans Lane in Nottingham.
Residents share photos of a frightening amount of smoke billowing over the city, claiming a large orange glow lit up the night sky.
"Over 100 firefighters continue to tackle a significant metal fire on Harrimans Ln," a Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service (NFRS) spokesman said. "Please stay out of the area and be aware of a large number of vehicles traveling to the incident; if you live nearby, keep your windows and doors closed."
Since being dispatched to the fire at 7:22 p.m., the NFRS has been updating their progress and providing safety advice on Twitter.
Firefighters are using two aerial ladder platforms and a high-volume pump, according to NottinghamshireLive.
As a large amount of smoke is being produced and carried by strong winds, a welfare unit is also on the scene.
Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue tweeted that 16 crews from across the city and beyond had been dispatched to Dunkirk.
NottinghamshireLive reports that firefighters have been called to the same industrial area for the third time in a year.
The workplace fire occurred just hours after the National Fire Protection Association (NFRS) published a story on its website about a business that was destroyed by fire last year.
The owner of the impacted property was contacted by the rescue service to discuss Electrical Safety Month.
The cause of the fire in Dunkirk on Saturday night had not been determined by the NFRS.
