Wood fires around Sleaford


Firefighters have had to deal with two small fires in the Sleaford area overnight.

At 6.21pm yesterday (Thursday) a crew was called to extinguish some logs on fire in Sleaford Woods off Summerfield Court using a water back pack.

A fire service spokeswoman said this had spread from controlled burning nearby.

Then at 8.11pm the Sleaford crew used a hose reel jet to tackle a quantity of pallets and waste wood on fire at a building site on Castle Causeway, Sleaford.

The cause of this fire is still under investigation by fire officers.
