Incident Number: 101999
In attendance: 2 x Harlow

Firefighters were called to a house in Harlow this afternoon after embers from a bonfire had caught a garden fence alight.

Firefighters managed to quickly extinguish the fire before it could spread to the house.

Firefighters are urging everyone to take extra care when having bonfires in their gardens. It is very easy, especially when it is also windy, for the fire or embers to spread and cause a serious fire.
