Chickens perish in 'devastating' allotment fire

Leamington Editorial 21st May, 2018 Updated: 22nd May, 2018   0

A NUMBER of chickens perished in a fire which ripped through allotments in Leamington.

The crew managed to save some of the chickens at the site off Northumberland Road after an unattended bonfire destroyed a number of allotments sheds on Friday.

A number of propane cylinders were caught up in the blaze and were cooled and made safe by crews.

Fire chiefs have warned leaving bonfires unattended can lead to ‘devastating consequences’.

A spokesperson advised to always ensure the area around the fire is clear before lighting, and to have an extinguisher or hose to hand.
