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.
