Crews also attended a bonfire involving tree cuttings on Edmunds Road, Worsborough Dale, last night.

"They can be a nuisance to neighbours and also put your property at risk.

"If you must have a fire, make sure it is sited well away from buildings, sheds and trees and never be tempted to use petrol or any other accelerant to get it going.”
