Firefighters were called to another fire at Wareham Forest last night.

Crews found 15 people having a camp fire and BBQ in the middle of the forest.

A spokesman for Bere Regis Fire Station said:

"These were quickly extinguished using water filled backpack extinguishers and taken away so they could not be reused.

"These were not local people so may not have seen our messages about not having any fires in the forest or on heathland.

"If you know anyone planning to come down and stay in the area, please pass our message on of NO CAMPFIRES and NO BBQ's"

A recent fire at Wareham Forest started by 'social activity' destroyed woods and healthland the size of 230 football pitches.
