Firefighters Tackle Tresco Reed Blaze

Tresco firefighters tackled a reed bed fire on the estate yesterday.

They used one appliance and hose reel to deal with the accidental blaze, which broke out just after 11.30 am.

It was thought that extra resources would be needed so the Bryher and St Martin’s fire crew were mobilized but were not required.

The fire was contained quickly and the incident stood down at 12.26 pm.
