The fire occurred in Bandırma Küçük Sanayi Sitesi around 6.30 p.m. last night. In the fire that broke out in the scrapyard for some reason, the flames quickly escalated. As smoke rising from the area was seen from many points in the neighborhood, citizens reported the situation to firefighters. From this notice, many firefighters and police teams were dispatched to the scene.
As firefighters began work to put out the blaze, police crews warned owners of nearby cars and took precautions against the possibility of the blaze spreading. The Balıkesir Water and Sewer Administration (BASKI) and water supply vehicles owned by the Municipality of Bandırma supported the work of the firefighting team. The fire was brought under control with about 2 hours of work thanks to the intense efforts of the firefighters.
The crews, who removed the waste using shovels and graders, completely extinguished the fire after the cooling works. An investigation into the fire has been opened.
