A large pile of burning landfill is finally out after firefighters spent days tackling the blaze.

Crews from Calne Fire Station responded to multiple reports of an incident in Compton Bassett at 6.07pm on Sunday, June 9.

Further 999 calls about the same fire led to further resources being mobilised from fire stations in Chippenham and Devizes.

After seeing a large plume of smoke billowing from the landfill site at Hills Waste Solutions, the emergency service requested support from a water carrier from Royal Wootton Bassett's fire station.

At one point, 30 firefighters and crews from several areas of Wiltshire and Dorset were involved in the effort to stop the fire spreading further.

A Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service spokesperson said: "We were faced with a large area of landfill well alight and spreading rapidly.

"Further assistance was requested with fire engines from Corsham Fire Station, Marlborough Fire Station, and support vehicles from Salisbury Fire Station and Swindon Fire Station.

"Due to the remote location, a high volume pump was requested from Christchurch Fire Station.

"Crews worked with on site staff to contain and smother the fire before leaving on Tuesday evening.

"Relief crews came from across both counties. Thanks to Rapid Relief Team UK for providing much-needed refreshments on Sunday night."
