Wrong kind of fire: Fire at the Tynes Bay Waste-to-Energy Facility (Photograph supplied)

Firefighters tackled a blaze at the Tynes Bay Waste-to-Energy Facility in Devonshire yesterday evening.

A spokesman for the Bermuda Fire and Rescue Service said officers were dispatched after they received reports of a structural fire at about 6.15pm.

The spokesman said: “BFRS responded with two appliances, one from Hamilton Station and one from Clearwater Station with a total of eight firefighters.

“On arrival firefighters found heavy smoke exiting the main entrance of the incinerator plant. The officer in charge of the incident instructed firefighters wearing breathing apparatus to enter and locate the fire.”

The spokesman said the fire had been extinguished and, as of 7.45pm, firefighters were still on the scene wetting down the area.

There were no reported injuries, and the cause of the fire was under investigation.

No details about the extent of any damage at the facility, or impact on work at the site, have been released.

The last fire at Tynes Bay was in 2015.
