Fire safety ad­vice af­ter bon­fire blaze

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - The Next 24 Hours -

FIRE­FIGHT­ERS are urg­ing peo­ple to keep their bon­fires un­der con­trol fol­low­ing a blaze near Wis­bech.

Crews from Wis­bech were called to an unat­tended bon­fire in Front Road, Mur­row, at 11.36am on June 3.

The fire had spread to some nearby conifers and then a gar­den shed.

A spokesper­son said: “If you are hav­ing a bon­fire, make sure it is well away from any­thing flammable and never leave the bon­fire unat­tended un­til all the ma­te­rial has been con­sumed.

“For­tu­nately, this fire was brought un­der con­trol but it did not take long to spread and it could have been a lot worse. Bon­fires can get out of con­trol if you do not keep an eye on it.”
