Sat at the PC earlier when I thought I could smell burning. Came down stairs and the missus said she could smell it too but that, "it seems to be coming from outside"
So opened the front door to be greeted by smoke and flying ash everywhere and flames coming from the house two doors away.
Turned out that a shed adjacent to their fence had caught fire which in turn had set fire to the fence itself. The fences are actually all connected so we abandoned house along with the rest of the street.
The Fire Brigade arrived and soon had the fire out but the speed it was moving along the fence meant the another few minutes and myself and the my neighbour would have been knocking some sections out to stop it spreading.
As it was the fire melted a huge kids climbing frame in my neighbours garden as well as destroying half of the fence.
The Fire Brigade were only here last week to discuss fire safety in the home and Recce. access points for the Tenders.
