Firefighters have issued advice after being called out to a fire in Burton Green that is believed to have been started by a cigarette.
At around 2.30pm this afternoon (Tuesday) firefighters from Kenilworth were sent out to reports of a house fire in Red Lane in Burton Green along with a crew from Leamington Fire Station.
When the crews arrived they found trees on fire next to the house.
A hose reel was used to extinguish the fire. The house was not affected.
In a post on the Kenilworth Fire Station Facebook Page it says "It is believed the fire was caused by a carelessly discarded cigarette.
"Make sure you fully extinguish cigarettes before disposing of them.
"Had the fire not been seen when it was the house would have also been involved."
