‘The fire was extinguished by Firefighters using 1 hose reel jet, breaking in gear and thermal imaging camera was also used.

‘If you use a disposable BBQ please ensure that it is not left in or close to anything combustible.

‘If you can you should put sand or soil onto your disposable BBQ to put it out, this will not cool the BBQ so please do this with care as it will still be hot.

‘Never leave a disposable BBQ indoors, this will give off deadly carbon monoxide gas.’
