Details
Fire crews mobilised to a report of a fire in the cab of a lorry on Aston Fields Road in Runcorn.  Once in attendance crews discovered a bin lorry well alight which was carrying a load of cardboard and the fire had spread to the load.  Two breathing apparatus wearers used two hose reel jets to extinguish the fire.  Two seven metre ladders were used to gain access to the rear of the vehicle and crews continued to damp down the area to make sure the fire was extinguished.  The vehicle was parked well away from any other fire risks.
