Firefighters appeal over barbecues

The Island's Fire and Rescue Service is reminding people to be extra careful with campfires and barbecues after a spate of grassfires in hot dry weather.

On Monday afternoon, firefighters were called to deal with a large fire at Groudle Glen - at its height four crews from Douglas and Laxey were called in to tackle it.

The incident happened at around 4.20pm and saw flames spread quickly along the headland after a disposable barbecue sparked the blaze.

Because the location was so isolated, it took firefighters two and a half hours to damp down the 200 square metres involved.

The Fire and Rescue Service are asking people to be extra vigilant with campfires and barbecues - you should never leave them unattended.

Their advice is to be careful where you use them and keep water available nearby in case you need to douse the fire.
