Large unattended bonfire

Oxford Road, Denham

One appliance and crew from Gerrards Cross and one from Hillingdon attended.

A large bonfire had been left unattended and was spreading to affect an area of about 20metres by 10 metres.

The firefighters used one hosereel.

With the current hot dry weather we would ask everyone to please think before lighting bonfires and braziers – grass, hedges and trees can act like a tinder box if a stray spark or hot embers reach them.
A fire can take hold quickly and rapidly spread.
