Government Flying Service helicopters were called in to water-bomb a fire that broke out at a computer recycling plant in Hung Lung Hang, Ta Kwu Leng, at about 11.30am yesterday. Thick black smoke billowed from the plant and could be seen many kilometres away, witnesses said. Firemen used six water jets and four teams with breathing apparatus to fight the blaze, which was put out at about 5.30pm.
