FIREFIGHTERS are warning people to be careful how they dump their used barbecues after a blaze wrecked a bin.

The incident took place in St Edwards Road, Gosport, yesterday morning, at 9am.

A crew from Gosport Fire Station was called to extinguish a blazing wheelie bin.

The fire was sparked by the smoldering remnants of a disposable barbecue, a spokesman said.

Nobody was hurt.
