Two crews from Bridport were called out last night to a local campsite.

A bin next to a caravan caught fire but was quickly put out.

A spokesman for Bridport Fire Station said:

"Luckily the fire was spotted early and had mainly been extinguished before our arrival."

"An investigation found that a small camp fire had been lit close to the caravan and it was likely that it had not been extinguished properly.

"An ember had been blown into the open compost bin resulting in the fire."
