Fire at Croft Quarry
17th May 2013
Firefighters were called from across Leicestershire to tackle a blaze at a quarry which burnt through the night.
Flames and smoke could be seen for miles around Croft Quarry, between Enderby and Cosby, after the fire took hold at about 19:00 BST on Friday.
At its peak, 50 firefighters battled the burning building bringing it under control by 23:00 and eventually putting it out in the early hours of Saturday.
The cause is being investigated and nobody is reported injured.
Specialist equipment, including a water carrier and aerial platforms were used to fight the fire which is thought to have involved a conveyor into the building.
Surveyors examined the damage later on Saturday 18th May.

People in the village were urged to stay indoors and keep doors and windows shut because of the toxic fumes.
The blaze, which was first reported shortly after 1.30pm 2nd May 2010, broke out on the east side of a compound belonging to Euro-Key Recycling in Warren Park Way. The fire started among stacks of plastic outside one of Euro-Key’s three buildings but soon spread to the nearest one – a 15,000sq ft warehouse.
