FIREFIGHTERS are battling a reignited scrap tyre fire for the third day.

A huge blaze broke out at the site of a former go-kart track, off Spring Mill Street, in the early hours of Monday morning.

At the height of the fire, 100 firefighters, 15 fire engines and two aerial appliances were needed to tackle the huge flames emanating from the mass of around 8,000 tyres.

Here's a handy timeline of all the major events and updates...

The blaze and plumes of smoke have played havoc with Bradford all week.

West Yorkshire Fire & Rescue (WYFRS) crews were starting to get the fire under control as the week drew on, but it reportedly reignited on Friday afternoon.

A photo, allegedly taken at 4.25pm on Friday, showed flames had taken hold again and the fire was still burning in an image which was apparently taken on Saturday morning.

Four fire engines were at the scene on Friday evening and overnight, with crews using using two jets, one hose reel and two ground monitors to try extinguish the blaze at 1.30am on Saturday, according to a WYFRS spokesperson.

But crews were still trying to put the scrap tyre fire out, using one ground monitor and a large jet.

This has continued into today, with three fire engines still at the scene as of 3am this morning.

A WYFRS spokesperson said: "We are currently using two large jets and two ground monitors to extinguish the fire."
