Tens of thousands of tonnes of cardboard is on fire at a paper mill in Birmingham, UK.
Twenty fire crews remain at the Smurfit Kappa plant, a mill for recycled packaging, in Nechells.
More than 70 firefighters are tackling the blaze in Mount Street, which broke out at about 22:00 BST on Wednesday, and 100 were at the scene overnight.
The fire service said no-one had been injured and the fire was not thought to be suspicious.
Crews, who are expecting the fire to burn for several days said it was now confined to a seven-acre area at the site, near the M6 motorway.
West Midlands Fire Service said a potentially dangerous situation was averted when a train carrying aviation fuel, due to pass the site at about 05:00 BST, was stopped eight miles away by Network Rail.
Following a safety assessment the train was allowed to continue 45 minutes later.
