Shed fire - Ravensthorpe - Peterborough

Crews from Dogsthorpe and Whittlesey were called to a shed fire in Smallwood, Ravensthorpe.

A shed and fencing was well alight and two firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used two hose reels to extinguish it. Cylinders were involved in the fire and firefighters cooled these using hose reels.

The crews returned to their stations by 6.45pm.
The cause of the fire was accidental – the homeowner lit a fire to exterminate a wasp nest and the fire became out of control.
