Grassfire in Old St Mellons

On the way home tonight we saw smoke streaming from a field near the houses in the area where we live

On close inspection it turned out to be a grass fire in a field started apparently by 2 local youths seen throwing what looked like a cigarette into the field

We stopped and phoned the fire brigade and then I started taking pictures (see social responsibility comes first ! )

Here's a selection

The view that greeted us

Fire Brigade on the scene and rolling out hoses

Putting it out

Damping down

I should have cropped that foot out !

All I can say is thank goodness we have these guys as well as the idiots in the world!
