Firefighter's warning to smokers after fire near Royal Windsor Way
Published: 18 Sep 2012 17:30
A crew from Slough were called to a small grass fire between the Jubilee River and Royal Windsor Way (formerly Windsor Relief Road) at around noon today (Tuesday).
Firefighters used one hose reel to extinguish the fire, leaving after around 40 minutes.
Watch manager Paul Whiting said the fire was probably caused by a discarded cigarette, adding: "People need to be careful as conditions are still quite summery and dry."
