Rubbish fire

Askett Village Lane, Askett

One appliance and crew from Aylesbury attended.

A large amount of commercial waste was on fire close to fields containing standing crops.

The firefighters used a hose reel and provided advice.

With the current hot dry weather, we would ask everyone to 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.
We have some suggestions for alternative ways to get rid of your waste in our Safety Advice Hub.
