Gas barbecues alert after weekend fires
10:00am Friday 12th July 2013 in News
OXFORDSHIRE Fire and Rescue Service has warned of the dangers of gas barbecues after two fires in Witney over the weekend.
One was caused by placing coal briquettes on a gas barbecue and the other by a faulty cylinder connection.
Witney Fire Station watch manager Nick Annetts said: “Both fires could have had much more serious consequences had they gone un-checked.”
He warned people to ensure gas barbecues are in good condition, placed at a safe distance from buildings and that no other fuels are added to them.
