It was several cars alight in an outdoors recycling plant fire in the ACT suburb of Beard. ACT Fire and Rescue had two pumpers, two CAFS tankers and a commander attend and were assisted by Rescue Pumper 428 from FRNSW. A large excavator was used to pull apart the pile of recycling materials while ACT and NSW fire crews applied foam to extinguish the fire.
