A spectacular fire broke out in the middle of the night in a sprawling tire dump in Spain, about 35 kilometres south of Madrid.
An emergency has been declared in Castilla La Mancha region as firemen struggle to contain the blaze.
About five million tires are piled on the site in Seseña, reportedly more than anywhere else in Europe.
The flames devouring them are coughing up black toxic smoke, and residents and drivers have been told to keep their windows closed.
