Residents urged to stay indoors at scene of Cumbria fire

RESIDENTS urged to stay indoors after fears of asbestos in smoke at the scene of a fire in Cumbria.

Emergency services are urging people in the Kingmoor Road area of Carlisle to stay indoors and close their doors and windows.

A fire has broken out the Cumbria Waste Management Centre and police said at this time there is a possibility that there may be asbestos in the smoke, and as a precaution people in the area are asked to remain indoors and ensure they have closed their doors and windows.

The road has been closed from the bypass, down to the junction at Hartley Avenue.

At this time no one is believed to have been injured.

Motorists are advised to avoid the area and seek alternative routes.
