Wheelie bin fires in Frome

Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue Service is asking residents and businesses in Frome to store  their bins out of sight, to avoid them becoming a target for arsonists, following a spate of wheelie bin fires last month.

A spokesperson from Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue Service said, “Arson is a serious crime and anyone convicted faces a length prison sentence and a significant fine.  A wheelie bin on fire outside a window or against a house can endanger the lives of people inside.

“It comes with a financial impact as each time the fire service is called out it results in a significant cost to the taxpayer.”

If anyone has any information about fires no matter how big or small please telephone crimestoppers on 0800 555111 where they can give details completely anonymously.
