Crew returns to former Slitting Mill fire site

11/11/2016

Deputy Chief Fire Officer Rob Barber said: "One crew from Rugeley attended the site of a former fire at Oak Tree Farm in Slitting Mill this morning. The stack that had previously been capped was disturbed overnight and a small section, away from the main pile, began to release smoke again. A digger will return to the site tomorrow to re-cap the stack, which should take one day to complete.

"Cannock Chase Council is continuing to monitor the air quality and will issue guidance and advice if appropriate. For more information and daily updates on the air quality condition visit: www.cannockchasedc.gov.uk/slittingmill."
