FIREFIGHTERS are tackling a horrific blaze at a wood recycling plant close to the M18.

Drivers were being warned of reduced visibility around junction three of the motorway as firefighters battle to contain the fire at Northern Wood Recycling in Bankwood industrial estate, Rossington.

Firefighters from Doncaster, Edlington and Maltby were called to the blaze at around 3.50am this morning.

About 1,000 tonnes of wooden pallets and an excavator are on fire outside the recycling plant.

A spokesman for South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service said “Firefighters are doing an excellent job of making the building safe by using jets to damp down the side of the building and so far they have managed to contain the fire.”.
