Firefighters spend hours tacking Cumbrian harbour grass blaze

Firefighters spent more than two hours tackling a large grass fire.

Crews were called to a bush blaze near Harrington harbour at about 1.30pm yesterday.

Two appliances from Workington attended, along with a wildfire specialist team from Silloth.

The blaze, estimated to have covered about 1,000 metres square of grass and gorse, was extinguished using a jet and beaters by 4pm.

The fire followed days of dry weather and another large-scale grass fire started on the Scottish side of the Solway Firth at Criffel, near Dumfries.

No, but instead of creating new tarn attractions the council should spend money on dog wardens

No, most dog owners are very responsible. Why spoil it for the majority?
