Firefighters successfully battled to stop a large fire spreading to a nearby bungalow, telephone lines and electrical cables in Wisbech.

Two crews from Wisbech and Dogsthorpe were called to a fire in the open in Lord’s Lane yesterday, Monday March 27.

About 50 square metres of wood and pallets were well alight in close proximity to a bungalow.

Firefighters used two hose reels to extinguish the fire and returned to their stations by 8.27pm.

The cause of the fire was accidental.
