Rubbish fire warning

Firefighters were called to a garden fire which had been left unattended and had spread to bins and the outside of  the house on Friday night.

The occupiers had been burning rubbish in a brazier earlier in the day and as the fire had died down had assumed it was safe to leave it.  A few hours later a passer by noticed the fire which had now spread and rang 999.

A fire engine from Cudworth station attended the incident on Tuxford Crescent in Cundy Cross, Barnsley at 11:20pm.

The fire crew used a hose reel to put the fire out.  Luckily no one was hurt during the incident.

There was miner damage to the outside of the property and a gas pipe have been affected.

Firefighters are urging residents not to leave rubbish burning unattended until the fire is completely out.
