Chester Road in Frodsham

Two fire engines attended, one from Chester and one from Powey Lane

At 10.50am firefighters were called to reports of a fire involving the trailer on the back of a heavy goods vehicle on Chester Road in Frodsham.
On arrival crews discovered approximately half a tonne of rubbish on fire in the recycling trailer unit.
Firefighters opened the back of the trailer and began fighting the fire with a hose reel jet.
They used a seven-metre ladder to help them to do this.
The trailer was later driven by the HGV to a nearby landfill site for the rubbish to be removed from it so that the fire could be fully extinguished.
A large water bowser and a hose reel jet enabled firefighters to do this.
Firefighters also controlled traffic.
They were in attendance for more than an hour.
