AAP logoAAP 24/10/2016

An excavator has been used to help extinguish a flaming pile of tyres at a tip in country Victoria.

CFA crews fought the flames for three hours on Tuesday morning at a rubbish facility in Kilmany, west of Sale, using an excavator to get to the core of the fire.

With thick black smoke billowing from the site a warning was issued to nearby residents and drivers on the Princes Highway but there's no threat to the community.
