Crews managed to put the blaze out quickly with water jets, and stop any further damage to the rest of the property. The incident was all over in half and hour, but they are now urging people to take extra care with bonfires.

They say you should always take extra care with bonfires, and to keep them well away from any buildings, trees, sheds, and other items. You should also ensure they are fully extinguished before leaving them unattended, as they could reignite at any time.
