Don't light fires/BBQs in countryside during dry weather, urge IOMFRS

IOMFRS advice is not to use disposable BBQ's, make sure cigarettes are extinguished and always take glass bottles home as sunlight shining through can start a fire.

The government is asking people not to light fires or barbecues in the countryside due to the increased fire risk in dry conditions. 

Our recent dry spell has left ground vegetation and soil tinder dry and means a small fire could quickly get out of control.

Fire crews tackled two wildfires near Port Soderick earlier this week, using 70,000 litres of water.

Their advice is not to use disposable BBQ's, make sure cigarettes are extinguished and always take glass bottles home as sunlight shining through can start a fire.
