Fire crew tackles bin blaze in Abbotsbury
9:31am Sunday 22nd June 2014 in News
A FIRE crew from Weymouth was called to reports of a bin on fire in a car park in Abbotsbury last night.
The service was contacted at around 12.30am and when firefighters arrived they found a bin well alight, which they extinguished using a hose reel jet.
The fire was believed to have been accidental and caused by the disposal of a barbecue.
Nearby public toilets suffered heat damage as a result and Dorset Fire and Rescue Service is urging people to take care when disposing of barbecues.
