Friday evening at 21:04 both of Midhurst’s fire engines were ordered to a fire in the garden of a domestic property that was quickly spreading to trees and hedgerows and beginning to affect the properties.
They arrived on scene within 6 minutes and quickly got to work bringing the fire under control and preventing it from spreading using a number of hose reel jets and a hydrant.
Additional support was requested and attended from Petworth Fire Station – 45
The cause was accidental. Midhurst FRS would encourage people to be extremely careful and vigilant during this hot weather where the risk of fires is high.
