Fire At Neepsend 28/05/2020

Recommended Posts

Surely there's nothing there to burn but there's a huge plume of thick black smoke over that way (looking down from Stannington). Any idea what's burning and where?

Looks as though it’s below ski village in the wooded area, it’s certainly a big blaze with thick black smoke. I’ve heard a few explosions whilst watching out of my kitchen window in lower Walkley

I'm on Foxhill and from here it looks to be right at the bottom of the hill - around the Kilner Retail Park area.

 

Edit: Walked to end of the road, clearly further out than that - maybe past Morrision's / Barracks

Sheffield Online are saying it's Arthur's skips. The pics certainly looked bad with the blaze. Poor guys.
