Carlton: Bin fire spreads to shed and houses


Residents in two Carlton houses had a lucky escape after a bin fire spread to their properties.

At 10.42am on Friday 3rd January firefighters were called to reports of a bin fire in Greenway.

But they arrived to find three wheelie bins ablaze, and the flames had spread to a shed and two nearby houses.

Two people had managed to get out of harm’s way before crews got there.

Two water hose reels were used to extinguish the fire.

A spokesman from Worksop Fire Station said the shed was severely damaged in the blaze, as were the bins.

There was also smoke and heat damage caused to guttering and cladding on the outside of the buildings.
