At first light the aftermath of the fire of a few hours earlier was clearly visible.
Some five waste disposal lorries look to have been destroyed by a fire that broke out around 10pm last night at their Hostmoor Avenue, March, depot.
Fire crews from across the area were called to the scene and eye witnesses spoke of hearing explosions – believed to be fuel tanks catching fire.
Roads in the area were sealed off as police diverted traffic and kept passers-by from getting near to the scene.
Glazewing is a waste management and recycling company with depots in March and Wisbech and has it headquarters at West Dereham, near Downham Market.
