BONFIRE RESULTS IN PROPERTY FIRE CALL OUT TO WOOTTON

Published at:

Firefighters have rushed to Wootton this evening (Monday) following reports of a property fire, but it has transpired that the alert has been sparked by a bonfire.

Crews from Newport and Ryde were mobilised to New Road, close to PGL Little Canada, at just before 20:20.

It has now been confirmed that a large bonfire – on what appears to be a residential construction site – has sent flames reaching for the sky.

1 hose reel jet is currently being used to extinguish the fire.

Ryde’s retained appliance has now returned to station ready for its next call out

The incident comes just days after Island residents were urged not to light bonfires and to take extra care during this time of crisis.

The question that should also be asked is “Do they have planning permission to live there”? Think about that one people.

Why shouldn’t we light bonfires so long as we control them?

Don’t all our emergency services and the island have enough problems trying to prevent and contain the virus here ?
We still have selfish idiots walking about spitting at the police, lighting fires , socialising etc etc
Are all these selfish idiots that thick ? Yes they obviously are , perhaps when their Ill and needing the emergency services to help them the penny might just drop as there’re will be no one available due to being too busy putting out fires , arresting their idiot friends who are spreading the virus around leaving the NHS unable to cope!
In short, if you selfish B’s want to die a horrible death don’t expect to be saved as nobody is going to be there for you !!!
