FIREFIGHTERS from Lymm were called out last night to tackle a fire involving a wheelie bin fire on a football field at a park in the village.
One crew attended to the rubbish fire on a football field in a park off Booths Hill Road.
The crew used a backpack extinguisher and a stack drag to put out the fire.
Residents are advised to store their wheelie bins safely, especially at night and to only put them out on collection day.
Also don’t overfill bins and leave rubbish lying around them.
Last night fire fighters put out a wheelie bin on fire in a local park, to keep your bins safe…
– Store all wheelie bins away, especially at night.
– Only place your wheelie bin out on collection day.
– Do not overfill your wheelie bins or leave loose rubbish around them. pic.twitter.com/mfAOJsnOVb
