‘Avoid area!’ Black smoke warning as huge clouds billow across Nottinghamshire after fire

Social media pictures from Drakeholes in Doncaster show a huge smoke cloud in Ranskill, in the Bassetlaw district of Nottinghamshire.

Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service are tackling a blaze involving tyres in the area.

They said on Twitter: “We are currently dealing with a large fire involving tyres in Ranskill which is giving off a lot of black smoke.

“Please avoid the area and close windows and doors if you see or smell smoke.”

Twitter users commented beneath the post that they could see the smoke from the Ranskill fire from the M1 near Sheffield.
