East Sussex Fire and Rescue is continuing to make good progress at the Newhaven fire.
The operation is taking time due to the large amount of waste involved and the need to ensure that potential pollution is minimised.
One fire engine is on site.
Excavators being driven by staff from the site's operators are in use, moving piles of rubbish to allow firefighters to extinguish any flames.
The cause of the fire is being investigated.
