Fence fire - West Town - Peterborough

A crew from Stanground was called to a fence on fire in Sovereign Avenue, West Town.

A bonfire had spread to a fence and firefighters used hose reels to extinguish it.

The crew returned to station by 11.20am.

The cause of the fire was accidental.

A CFRS spokesman said: “We would discourage residents and businesses from lighting bonfires and instead recommend they take any refuse or garden waste to a recycling centre. 

“If you do decide to light a bonfire, ensure it is built well away from any fences, vegetation and property, and never leave it unattended.”
