Fire Fighters Called To St Martin’s Grass Fire

If you heard the fire station siren last night just before 5pm it was alerting fire fighters to a blaze on St Martin’s.

A small fire, which was lit to burn off dead grass at the Vineyard, flared up more than expected.

Tony Goddard says St Mary’s crew were alerted but when St Martin’s fire fighters arrived on scene they stood down their colleagues across the water.

The fire was extinguished within 30 minutes of the crew arriving.
