Fire in external brick-built bin store

Bartlett Crescent, High Wycombe

Two appliances and crews from High Wycombe attended. Firefighters used a main jet and a hose reel.

The likely cause was discarded domestic waste containing hot embers from a barbecue or cigarettes. Firefighters are urging people to make sure that if their household waste contains anything that was once hot it is throughly cooled so that it is cold when placed in the bin or sack.
