Barbecue Incidents

Request


I would like to request the number of fires reported in where the cause has been related to a barbecue in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and so far in 2014.

If possible I would like the number of fires for each year be broken down into the areas in which they took place.

I would also like to know the number of injuries and fatalities if any for each year.

I would also like to know how much the call outs to these fires has cost the Staffordshire fire service for each year.
