FIRE crews were called to tackle a small bin blaze.

It is unclear what started the fire, but when firefighters arrived, the bin was alight.

One crew from Havant was called to Soberton Road, at midday yesterday.

They used a hose reel to put out the flames, and then ensured the area was safe.

One crew from Cosham was also called, but was turned away. Firefighters are reminding people to make sure they fully extinguish anything that’s alight.
