Scrapyard blaze

ABOUT 300 tonnes of shredded car interiors caught fire at a scrapyard in Bourne.

It is believed a natural build-up of heat within the pile of mixed materials, including plastic, sparked the blaze in South Fen Road at about 2.30am on Tuesday.

Fire crews from Bourne, Market Deeping and Billingborough and a water carrier from Holbeach attended the scene.
