Station Manager Scott Meekings, Incident Commander said: “Firefighters have worked really hard to prevent this fire from spreading to and destroying the house next door.
“If you’re going to have a bonfire, please set it well away from sheds, fences, trees and bushes etc as the wind can carry the embers. Never leave bonfires unattended and make sure the embers have completely cooled before you leave the bonfire.”
