Due to an increased number of controlled burns within the last four weeks, Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service (NFRS) have seen a rise of 123% when compared to this time last year. The service is advising people NOT to light bonfires in the garden during the Coronavirus pandemic. 

In recent weeks, the Service has seen a rise in the number of calls to bonfire and ‘controlled burning’ in residential areas after reports by concerned neighbours. In line with this guidance we are therefore asking our residents not to light any bonfires in gardens to prevent danger to property, to those that have existing respiratory conditions and to help an already over stretched emergency service during the pandemic.
