Firefighters from Stafford and Rising Brook tackled a shed fire on Milton Grove in the Highfields area of Stafford at 9.20pm last night.
The incident involved a controlled burn in a back garden that had spread to a neighbouring property’s shed. Crews tackled the fire using three hose reel jets and also removed LPG cylinders being stored in the shed before they too caught fire. Just last week firefighters attended a similar incident in Yarlet in which a bonfire set a nearby outbuilding on fire.
The Service is reminding residents to take extra care when burning rubbish by monitoring the burn and by ensuring fires are not set near to buildings, fences, sheds and trees. People are also advised to inform the Service’s fire control if they plan to burn rubbish on 08451 21 33 22.
