Weed burner warning following fire in Ellesmere Port

Firefighters are warning people of the dangers of using weed burners in their gardens following a fire in Ellesmere Port.

The recent fire was caused by a homeowner using an electric device to kill weeds at the edge of his garden.

The weed burner ignited a wooden fence separating his garden from a neighbour’s address.

The fire quickly spread to the neighbour’s wooden shed that was up against the fence.

The resulting blaze destroyed the fence and the shed.

It spread to the exteriors of the houses at both addresses, as well as to a brick-built shed in the neighbour’s garden, before being extinguished by firefighters with hose reel jets.

The blaze caused significant damage to both addresses and firefighters are urging people to be cautious when using such garden gadgets.
