Firefighters were called to a fire at an industrial park this morning.
On arrival, crews reported that around 100 bales of cardboard were alight.
Due to the large amount of smoke being created by the fire, crews worked alongside the Environment Agency and Police to ensure the nearby A13 was not affected.
At 12.03pm, the officer in charge reported that the fire was under control.
Firefighters remain at the scene to ensure the cardboard is completely cooled and are currently dampening down remaining hotspots.
