Update at 13:20pm, 2 January 2022:
The tyre fire outside the old maggot farm on Stocking Lane, Knottingley, near the River Aire, is now being scaled down.
A controlled burn out will now be allowed, as the Fire Service works in partnership with the Environment Agency and other partners. Localised smoke is likely to continue. The site is secured and will be continually monitored.
Crews from Stanningley, Cookridge, Pontefract, Castleford, Garforth and Normanton were called to the site at 05:30am yesterday morning, on New Year's Day.
