Bin fire - Chesterton - Cambridge

A crew from Cambridge was called to a bin fire in Maitland Avenue, Chesterton.

When firefighters arrived they found a wheelie bin on fire against a house. Firefighters used two hose reels to extinguish the fire and then went inside the property to ensure the fire had not spread.

The incident was dealt with by 11.30am.

The cause of the fire is unknown.

Crew Commander Scott Fretwell said: “We would encourage residents to store wheelie bins out of sight if possible and well away from your house so there is a reduced risk in a fire spreading to property, should one start.”
