Mon, 22 Apr 2019

A disposable barbecue that had not been fully extinguished caused a fire in Maughold yesterday evening.

Crews from Ramsey used an off-road vehicle to reach the fire on Maughold Head at just before 7pm.

The fire involved a small area of gorse and headland.

Isle of Man Fire and Rescue Service are urging the public to ensure they use disposable barbecues in safe locations and to make sure they are fully extinguished.
