An investigation is under way into the cause of a blaze at a wood recycling business.

Firefighters were called to Phoenix Green Resources on the Canklow Meadows Industrial Estate, Rotherham, at 3.15am yesterday to find part of the industrial unit engulfed in flames.

Four fire engines were deployed to the scene as well as an aerial ladder platform, which doused water on the flames from above.

Crew members managed to contain the blaze to one section of the building and prevented flames spreading to nearby units.

They had to cool down a number of gas cylinders in the burning unit to prevent them exploding in the heat.

Crews spent more than six hours at the scene.
