A massive fire broke out in Cardiff, prompting nearby residents in various parts of the city to warn residents to “close all windows” as the smoke spread.
Roads were closed at the scene of the fire at an industrial establishment on Sewal Road in the city’s Trimorfa area and emergency services were in place. One resident said they were nearby because they had “black, acid smoke” and had to leave.
He said: “I saw a big flame next to the building. The black, acid smoke didn’t last long.”
Another said: “If you live in Cardiff, close all the windows. Smoke and odors are spreading rapidly with the wind. Rem If you live in Trimorpha, Splot, Adamsdown, Pengum Green, and possibly Roth or Romney, close all the windows. Fires are happening, Sewal Road and smoke and odors are spreading. “
Another resident described the fire as “horrific”: “Imagine it going on for a while.”
The South Wales Fire and Rescue Service said: “The crew is taking part in a massive fire involving tires on Sewell Road. Please residents of the area can keep doors and windows closed.”
South Wales Police said: “Roads in the Sewal Road area of Cardiff are closed due to ongoing fires in the industrial area. Authorities were alerted by the South South Wales Fire and Rescue Service just before 7pm. Drivers were advised to avoid the area.”
