They were called to Tattersett at about 8.10am and about 20 tyres were on fire as well the rubbish.

It took about 40 minutes to bring it under control.

A fire service spokesman said it was some distance from the mountain of hundreds of thousands of tyres which has been dumped on another part of the airfield.
