Large fire on Gypsy Lane, Swindon


Date: 23rd January, 2021

Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service were called to a large fire on Gypsy Lane in Swindon at 02:07 this morning. Crews from Swindon (two), Stratton (two), Westlea and Stroud, as well as a water carrier from Royal Wootten Bassett and the Aeriel Ladder Platform from Swindon, attended the incident.

A large amount of scrap metal and recycling products were found well alight, but firefighters had the fire surrounded by 03:15 and made good progress using foam jets.

The fire created a substantial smoke plume in the area so local residents were asked to close their windows and doors.

Firefighting action was ceased due to the bunded area becoming overwhelmed by water run off. Firefighters worked with the onsite management team to divert the water to a secondary area and resumed fighting the fire.

The stop came at 06:26.
