A carelessly discarded cigarette is thought to have been the cause of a scrubland fire at Anderby Creek.

The alarm was raised at 1.15pm this afternoon (Sunday) when a firecrew from Alford were sent to deal with the scrub fire at The Dell.

The fire was already out on arrival and only required an inspection by firefighters to establish the cause.
