Fire!

27 06 2010

There were 6 fire appliances and 40 firemen on the heath this afternoon for a couple of hours fighting another fire in the gorse. There are also official signs on the heath reading ‘Help Stop Arson – Now! Fire kills’ with requests for people to phone 01473 613500 if they have any information about those responsible.

I have written a separate post about the gorse fire cycle.

Update the following day….

As if to drive home the message two fire appliances were back on the heath for another fire in the same area the following day. Is it really best to have to respond to a fire on the hottest day of the whole year?
