Hot ash in wheelie bin causes damage to fence and windowsill

Warren Close, Stone

One appliance and crew from Aylesbury attended.

A fire caused by hot ash in a wheelie bin had caused damage to two fence panels and a windowsill.

The firefighters used a hose reel and provided advice.

Safety tip:
Please be aware that hot ash can melt a plastic bin or cause a fire. If you have an open fire, or use a barbecue, please empty ashes onto bare garden soil, not into dustbins or wheelie bins.
