BBQ sparks vehicle fire

A BBQ left unattended in the high winds last night caught fire to a trailer tent and car after embers were blown across them.

Firefighters from Doncaster station were called to Lichfield Road in Wheatley, Doncaster at 11:30pm on Tuesday night.  A trailer tent and a car were on fire on the driveway of a semi-detached house.

The fire crew used a hose reel to bring the fire under control.  Luckily no one was hurt in the incident.

Firefighters are warning people not to leave BBQ’s unattended as this incident shows they can easily spread and cause serious damage.
