Garden Bonfires Safety Advice

  • Build your bonfire downwind and well away from buildings, trees, bushes or other flammable materials.
  • Clear away grass to form a circle of earth around the fire.
  • Build the fire stack so than it collapses inward when burning.
  • Watch for flying embers and sparks.
  • Don't use petrol or paraffin to start the fire.
  • Don't leave the fire unattended.
  • Never throw aerosol or LPG containers on the fire.
  • Ensure the fire is put out and cover the ashes with earth.
