Firefighters were twice called to a Ramsey takeaway on Saturday (August 30).

A large bonfire, containing rubbish and tyres, on land behind the Chilli Hut in close proximity to a building, in High Street, was set alight.

Ramsey firefighters were called at 3.44pm and extinguished the fire by 4pm.

The bonfire, near other buildings, was again set alight and firefighters returned at 5.16pm.

A Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said: “We would strongly recommend people dispose of their rubbish responsibly, which includes attending a local waste site.

“If however, you are going to light a bonfire, always take great care. Be sure to never leave it unsupervised, check the wind direction, build it well away from other structures or flammable materials, and never pour accelerant on it.”
