A fire at a recycling centre in Welshpool during the early hours of Thursday morning was not deliberately started, according to the fire service.

Firefighters from four towns were called to Potters' waste management and recycling facility at around 12.30am where an unspecified amount of recycled material was well alight.

It took crews from Llanfyllin, Llandrindod Wells, Montgomery and Welshpool to extinguish the fire.

Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service has ruled out any malicious intent.


"It’s unlikely the exact cause of the fire will be identified," a fire service spokesperson said.

"Following an inspection after the fire was extinguished, the Officer was satisfied that the fire was not set deliberately, and it was accidental.

"No further investigation will be carried out."

Potters confirmed that the facility in Welshpool is open following the fire which started on Thursday morning.
