BBQ sparks huge headland fire in Dalby - picture

40 firefighters spent the weekend tackling a fire in Dalby this weekend.

They were called into action just after 6pm on Saturday after reports of a blaze on the headland and beach.

Seven appliances were taken to the scene – with every station on the Island involved, bar Castletown.

Firefighters spent over seven hours trying to contain and prevent the spread of the fire both north and south along the coastline and headland.

The Isle of Man Fire and Rescue Service say they believe it was caused by a disposable BBQ which was being used on the foreshore.
