Don’t set Wheathampstead up in smoke!
Fire spreads fast in the tinder dry conditions we are currently experiencing.
Volunteers spotted unattended plumes of smoke and have just doused a fire set by children on the open grass near the river.
No fires please, nor striking of matches etc. You may not intend it but you could inadvertantly destroy a lot of property land, crops, buildings …..
and of course cause damage to life of people and animals.
It may seem like fun to start with, you may be in control. Then all of a sudden nature takes over and the fire takes control.
