Kentish Express Ashford & District - - News -

Fire­fight­ers tack­led a fence fire on bank hol­i­day Mon­day caused by an out-of-con­trol bon­fire. Two fire en­gines went to the prop­erty in The Pin­nock, Pluck­ley, at 4.10pm af­ter the blaze had spread to a nearby wooden fence. A brigade spokesman has is­sued a warn­ing to keep bon­fires well clear of build­ings, gar­den sheds, fences, hedges and over­hang­ing branches. He added: “Keep bon­fires to a man­age­able size and evenly built so that they col­lapse in­wards as they burn. It is also cru­cial to never leave bon­fires unat­tended. If it has to be left, damp it down with wa­ter.” No one was in­jured.
