1 appliance and a water carrier were mobilised when a member of the public reported a fire within local woodland.
Thankfully, the quick response of the retained crew meant that the incident was contained before the fire spread and the situation escalated.
A foam extinguisher was initially used to dowse the flames before a main jet was utilised to soak the area. A thermal imaging camera was then used to check for any hotspots.
Firefighters report that there was substantial evidence of alcohol consumption and picnicking in the effected area and large amounts of rubbish. Islanders are being asked to be kind to our beautiful countryside.
