Derry tyre fire site under investigation

As the site of Sunday night's tyre fire continues to smoulder in Eglinton, it's emerged that the depot was under investigation for allegedly storing tyres illegally.

The site, which was sub-let, was not licensed to store a large number of tyres, but it's now emerged that half a million tyres were being stored there.

Police are treating the blaze as arson after fire fighters confirmed they found four separate fires blazing across the one-acre site when they arrived at the scene on Sunday night.
