EIGHT fire crews have been fighting a major blaze at the Nantycaws recycling centre in Carmarthenshire. Huge plumed of smoke that can be seen for miles around.
Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service confirmed to Herald.Wales it received a call reporting the incident shortly after 3pm on Saturday afternoon, and that specialist equipment was despatched to the scene.

The council said the alarm was raised from the site’s materials recovery facility.
Paul Wakelin, head of operations at Cwm Environmental, who run the site, said it was working closely with the fire service.
“We do not yet know the cause of the fire and a full investigation will need to be launched,” he said.
The council said the recycling centre and the waste transfer station for the disposal of commercial waste were now closed.

It said residents who had booked an appointment between Sunday and Wednesday could instead visit one of the county’s other sites at Trostre, Wernddu or Whitland, but should bring their confirmation email.
