Householders were warned yesterday to alert the fire service before they burnt garden waste.

The Bermuda Fire & Rescue Service spoke out after they received several reports of an unattended fire at a property on North Shore Road, Pembroke, near Overview Hill, at about 5.15pm on Tuesday.

A spokesman said: “This incident had been reported to the dispatch by the homeowner as a controlled burn of horticultural waste.

“We responded to investigate as we received multiple calls from the public that the fire was unattended.”

The spokesman said anyone who wanted to burn garden waste should contact the fire service control room on 296 7599 to give details, including location, time of start, time of completion and contact details for the person monitoring the fire.
