A blaze was reported at a site in Redhill, Telford, where hundreds of tons of compost had caught fire at about 6pm. Nearby undergrowth was also on fire.
Fire crews from central Telford, Wellington and Bridgnorth were sent to the scene and firefighters spent the night putting out and damping down the fire.
People working nearby helped out using diggers and excavators.
