Verwood crew tackle open fire at The Chase
A crew from Verwood Fire Station, along with colleagues from Ringwood and Fordingbridge were called to a ‘small’ fire at The Chase on Wednesday afternoon.
On arrival, a large fire measuring approx 50m x 50m contained within a area of standing trees and heath was discovered and extinguished.
