20 firefighters tackle bin lorry with five tonnes rubbish ablaze



Around 20 firefighters rushed to tackle a bin lorry blaze after its rubbish burst into flames.
Four crews were scrambled to the incident at Venture Way, Grantham, today, January 18.
The fire was producing a large amount of smoke so residents in the area were told to close their doors and windows.
The incident was eventually scaled down to two fire crews who were damping down hotspots.
An eyewitness who works nearby, but does not wish to be named, said: "I got to work as it was all over.
"There are burns on the vehicle.
"I saw four fire engines there."
