Rubber tyres don’t readily ignite but once alight, the spread of fire and smoke can be rapid. The higher the storage, the greater the fire hazard and the more difficult to control by sprinklers at ceiling level. Tyres stored on their side in pallets tend to fall into the fire as they burn, and this helps to confine the spread of the fire.

A similar fire-risk occurs on tyre-building machines, where successive layers of rubberized fabic, and the outer tread, are firmly moulded into the modern tyre. In order to improve the adhesion between the layers the operators wipe the surface of the material with a pad dipped in naptha, texine, or similar spirit.

The fire burned for just 17 days, but consumed nearly 14 million tires, which were spread across 11 acres of land. Three years prior, the owner of the tire dump had been ordered by the Canadian Ministry of Environment to build fire lanes and install water lines in case of fire, but the work was never done.
