Deck Fire In Forest Hill
7/1, 9a, Ponfield Rd East, Forest Hill: The month of July has started out like June began and ended, with another deck fire, this time from discarded ashes. Fortunately it was caught early by neighbors and damage was minimal.
The proper methods of discarding ashes is to throughly soak them in water and place in a metal container far away from combustibles, such as your deck, shed, vehicle/s, fences, trees and home just to name a few.
