Warning to residents after sunlight shining on mirror sparks garage fire

A WARNING has gone out to residents to think carefully about the contents of their outbuildings after a garage fire in Tardebigge.

It was caused by sunlight streaming through the window and reflecting off a mirror.

Fire crews from Bromsgrove and Redditch attended the blaze with the garage well alight by the time they got there.

Firefighters used water jets and a triple extension ladder to extinguish the flames.

Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service has since warned residents to be careful of where mirrors and other reflective items are positioned.
