Fire in Whitby Wheelie Bin Spreads to Property

Published by Jon Burke at 8:10am 12th September 2019.

Firefighters from Whitby and Robin Hood's Bay have attended reports of a wheelie bin on fire under a porch of a property in Whitby.

Fire crews were called just after 9.50pm yesterday to a building, which contained a ground floor and first floor flat.

The fire spread to porch or property causing 100% fire damage to the bin and the porch.

All residents were able to get out of the building and a female in her 70s was checked over by paramedics after suffering smoke inhalation.

Fire crews put out the fire using 1 hose reel, a thermal imaging camera, triple extension ladder and hand tools.
