Residents in Bagillt were asked to keep windows and doors shut overnight after a blaze broke out at an industrial estate.

The fire was understood to be at a recycling unit on the Dee Bank Industrial Estate.

Steve Taylor shot this video as firefighters arrived at the scene just after 11.30pm.

In an update on social media just before 2am, North Wales Fire and Rescue Service said: “Crews are currently in attendance at an incident near Dee Bank Ind Est, Bagillt. “

“Many thanks to the public for their calls regarding the fire, please be assured that we are dealing with the incident.”

“If you are local, please close all windows and doors due to smoke in the area.”

The fire appears to have broken at the same site as one on News Year’s Eve which prompted the police and the fire service to launch a joint investigation.

The fire service later said they were called at 11.07pm to a recycling unit on Dee Bank industrial estate in Bagillt.

Crews from Holywell, Flint and Mold attended.

Fire officers were to carry out a further investigation this morning.
