The house next door to us has been empty for months, the owner is planning to build some houses on the land, and yesterday the builders arrived. They’ve quite a bit of land to clear and on the whole they weren’t overly noisy with it, and haven’t caused much bother.

They have been burning stuff for most of the day, old tree roots, and such like. It’s been a bit of a pain in the arse because the house now stinks of smoke and the garden is covered in ash. Annoying, but not the end of the world. The builders cleared off at 16.00, and Loz popped to the shops around an hour later.

This is what you can see from the pavement..




They’d left the fire going, they thought it was a good idea to leave a fire (next to some fences) alone overnight on a housing estate. The site is secure, actually no it’s not, you’ll see how secure those metal fences aren’t (held together with string) – and they just left it.

My neighbour (the other side) and I lifted the fence panel to get a closer look.

It was still raging away underneath, and one large floating ember or a local kid playing with it could have had nasty consequences. I wasn’t going to leave it so we hooked up the hose and put it out..
It took about 15 minutes to calm it down, as it had been burning most of the day the heat it was kicking off was incredible. Really though, what idiots leave a fire burning unattended, and worse still, overnight?! Fucking morons.
