Firefighters tackled a bin lorry fire south of York today (Tuesday).
Crews from York and Selby responded to a report of a fire to rubbish inside the lorry on Landing Lane, Riccall at 9.16am.
A North Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service spokesperson said: “Crews initially dampened down the contents of the lorry but were unable to access the seat of the fire.”
The crews then followed the wagon to the depot.
There, “the load was tipped to allow crews to dampen down and turn over the refuse to ensure the fire was extinguished fully.
“The incident was left with the depot staff.”
