Firefighters are damping down after a huge blaze involving a pile of wooden pallets in Doncaster.

Crews were called to Askern UK Ltd, just off Askern High Street, yesterday afternoon to find a pile of pallets covering an area measuring 100m by 80m engulfed in flames.

At the height of the blaze there were six fire engines at the scene.

Firefighters are still damping down this morning to ensure there are no hidden hotspots.

Water had to be drawn from nearby Askern lake to drench the flames yesterday and overnight.

The cause of the blaze has not yet been revealed.
