Bonfire out of control - New England - Peterborough
16/08/2017 - 1.08PM
Crews from Sawtry, and one from Lincolnshire, were called to a bonfire that got out of control at a home in Burmer Road which spread to fences and a garden shed.
Firefighters used two hose reels to extinguish the fire and returned to their stations by 1.58pm.
Top tips if having a bonfire include:
- Light the fire well away from buildings, sheds, fencing and shrubs/trees
- Stay with the bonfire at all times until it is out
- Keep children and animals away from the fire
- Do not light the bonfire if it is breezy as the wind can cause the bonfire to quickly spread.
