Bonfire, Soham - East Cambs

One crew from Soham attended a report of a fire in the open in The Butts. On arrival firefighters dicovered this was a bonfire that had spread to a fence and the surrounding area. Sadly a pet rabbit died in the fire. Crews ensured the fire was out and returned to their station by 10.20pm.

Top tips if having a bonfire:

  • 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.
