Six fire engines rush to blaze at asphalt plant in Hayes

London Fire Brigade have confirmed that six fire engines and around 40 firefighters tackled a fire at an asphalt plant on Pump Lane in Hayes.

The brigade said that part of a storage silo containing four tonnes of asphalt was damaged by fire and the asphalt was removed by an onsite digger and extinguished. Thankfully, there were no injuries. One of the Brigade’s 64-metre turntable ladders was deployed at the scene.

The Brigade was called at 01:49am and the fire was under control by 03:42am. Crews from Hayes, Southall, Wembley, Northolt and surrounding fire stations attended the scene.

The cause of the fire is believed to be accidental and caused by a mechanical failure within a heat extractor.
