Up to thirty firefighters tackle large silage pit fire on Allt Goch Lane, Flint Mountain.
Clouds of thick black smoke could be seen for miles as tyres which were stacked on top of the pit caught light.
Five appliances, the Environmental Protection Unit, the Foam Carrier and the Incident Command Unit were all in attendance at the incident.
North Wales Fire and Rescue service issued a statement saying;
“A silage pit covered in tyres which resulted in black smoke being visible in the area earlier this evening.
Natural Resources Wales has officers on site to assist the North Wales Fire and Rescue Service and assess the potential impact of this incident on the environment.”
Firefighters from Deeside, Mold, Flint, Wrexham and Holywell, were called to the blaze.
Photographer Jack Reece who was on the scene told us the firefighters were running water hoses over two miles by relay drawing water from a pond.
