BBQs cause of fire in Groudle

Isle of Man fire crews have extinguished a fire which began after two disposable barbecues were the cause.

Crews also discovered a number of glass bottles left after a group of people had been drinking.

Isle of Man Fire and Rescue Service are asking members of the public not to use disposable BBQ's in the countryside with the high risk of another incident like this happening. 

Posting on social media, the Fire Service said: ‘We estimate that around 50,000 litres of fresh water was used as well as drawing water from the river to help bring the fire under control which puts more of demand in our fresh water stocks!’
