According to DFB, crews from the council separated the mulch with a digger while firefighters hosed it down with water to cool it.

In a statement to The Echo, a spokesperson from the council said: “A stockpile of mulch from the shredding of Christmas trees, which is in the area at the back of the storage bays in Tymon depot had been smouldering due to overheating, this happens occasionally.
