Sadly there has been two deliberate fires at Raw Nook NR during the last few days. The first I managed to put out myself the second one was more serious and I had to call the fire brigade out. They were brilliant and the fire was put out.
The real concern of a major fire in both Raw Nook NR and Toad holes Beck apart from the wildlife and local environment is the smoke pollution drifting across the motorway and railway due to the proximity of the sites.
I would therefore urge anyone living near or visiting the area to be alert to any fires small or large and do not afraid to call the fire brigade as they told me ‘That putting out a small fire is easier than putting out a large one’….
