Garden fire spreads in Carlton Garden fire spreads in Carlton


AN out-of-control garden fire spread to a shed, fence and scorched a neighbour's fence.

The fire, in a garden on Cartmel Court, Carlton, caused severe damage to the shed and fence and had started to scorch a neighbour's shed.

A crew from Cudworth arrived at about 8pm last Saturday and spent 20 minutes putting the fire out.

A spokesman for the fire service warned against garden fires in the hot, dry weather.

Many of these fires are started deliberately, and firesetters can be reported anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
