Newbury  crew tackle garden waste fire in the early hours

NEWBURY Fire Station had another busy night with a callout to an early morning fire in Thatcham.

Red Watch were sent to "a large pile of garden waste, a garden waste bin & part of an out building alight" in Chapel Street at 2.57am.

Crews found a fire in a garden spreading to an outbuilding and extinguished it. They were at the scene for around 45 minutes. 

With the warm weather set to continue and the greater risk to fire, people are being asked to be ever more vigilant about storing garden waste.
