FIREFIGHTERS have warned people about putting disposable barbecues in refuse bins after a blaze on Southsea Common.
A fire engine was called out at about 4.20pm on Saturday to a burning bin.
The fire was quickly put out, but firefighters warned people that warm disposable barbecues should never be put in a litter bin as warm coals can lead to fires.
The incident was one of several short call-outs for firefighters over the weekend.
