Industrial Blaze in Laverton Nth

Industrial fire in Laverton Nth

Smoke has billowed into the air from a major fire at a recycling plant in Laverton North.

After igniting at about 10.30 pm on Thursday, firefighting services were battling to extinguish the blaze at the Norstar Steel Recyclers facility on Dohertys Road this morning.

The fire which has now been deemed under control involved a 50 by 50 metre pile of recycled metal.

Alongside firefighters, workers at the site were also utilising heavy machinery to separate some of the material in the blaze.

Those living in Deer Park, Derrimut, Laverton North, Ravenhall, Sunshine West and Truganina should be aware that smoke may be visible or odorous in those areas.
