Fire in the open - Farcet - Huntingdonshire

Crews from Stanground, Dogsthorpe and a water carrier from Ramsey attended a fire in the open in Milk and Water Drove, Farcet.

A large bonfire had become out of control and spread to fencing and hedges. Firefighters used hose reels to extinguish it and returned to their stations by 2.35pm.

The cause of the fire was accidental.

Please think twice before lighting a bonfire. If possible, take materials to a waste and recycling site instead.

If you do still decide to have a bonfire, light it well away from property and trees and never leave it unattended.
