Burnham-On-Sea fire crews called to blaze in sand dunes

These were the scenes on Brean beach on Saturday evening (May 30th) as Burnham-On-Sea fire crews tackled a blaze in the sand dunes.

A barbecue that had been lit on the edge of the dunes, close to the Seagull Inn, set 20 square metres of grass on fire.

Two fire engines rushed to the scene at 4.45pm and crews used fire beaters and a water jet to dampen down the grass and ensure the fire did not spread.
