I extinguished a fire yesterday outside my flat, threat remains, urgently needs addressing. Next to my flat #5 Holyrood House Portland Rise estate there's a pile of dried leaves, I estimate 1/2 ton, left there by council workers last November. Yesterday I found a small fire spreading through it, guess it was caused by a dropped cigarette butt or something. Fire was extremely stubborn, took about 8 large buckets of water to put out. It's a basically a giant tinder box, and right in between peoples' homes. Accident waiting to happen. Please clear the area ASAP. Cheers, Paul.
