Resident's plea to arsonists as grass fire skirts homes of elderly

Last night's fires on Gower put firefighter's at extra COVID 19 risk says local

A woman who lives near the cliffs in Pennard, Gower has been in touch with us after a fire came close to the homes of  elderly residents in the village.

Joanna got in touch with us to plead with people to be vigilant in reporting suspicious activity.

She said:

"Some of the residents are over 80 years old and have mobility issues. The fires came within 20 metres of houses.

"I would like to thank the fire service who though very over stretched, came to put out the fire putting themselves at risk of the covid19 virus.

"If anybody knows who is starting these fires please tell the police. This is a dangerous selfish activity taking place over Wales."


Its as South Wales Fire and Rescue Service have warned they have had to deal with over a hundred grass fires on their patch.
