Bonfire - Waterbeach - South Cambs

A crew from Papworth was called to an out of control bonfire in Burgess Road.

Firefighters used a hose reel to extinguish the fire and returned to their station by 3.06pm.

Cause of the fire was accidental.

Top tips if having a bonfire are:

  • Light the fire well away from buildings, sheds, fencing and shrubs
  • 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.
