A crew tackled an unattended bonfire in March last night.

At about 8.35pm, a crew from Ramsey was called to a bonfire in Dagless Way.

Firefighters extinguished it using hose reels and returned to their station by 9.25pm.

A CFRS spokesman said: “We would urge residents and businesses alike to make sure they build bonfires well away from other property, foliage and fences, never pour accelerant on them or use canisters in them, and ensure they never leave them unattended.”
