Fire crews called after domestic rubbish being burned in North End back garden roars out of control
FIREFIGHTERS have put out a rubbish blaze in a Portsmouth back garden after it roared out of control.
A Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service spokeswoman said the fire in Chichester Road, North End, pictured, was supposed to be a ‘controlled’ burning of ‘domestic’ waste.
But a crew from Southsea Fire Station was called to tackle it at 11.51am after it grew rapidly.
A video, at the top of this story, shows the flames rising above the fence of the back garden – with smoke billowing around neighbouring properties.
Firefighters put the blaze out using one hosereel jet and one set of breathing apparatus.
They issued a stop message at 12.19pm.
