Cigarette blamed for garden blaze

Have your say

A CIGARETTE thrown to the ground set fire to a garage in Honington on Wednesday afternoon.

Fire crews from Grantham and Sleaford were called to a house in Main Street just after 3pm.

There was severe fire damage to a garage and its contents, as well as two metres of fencing. Several ornamental trees were also damaged in the blaze.

Fire investigators determined the cause was “carelessly discarded smoking materials”.
