Fire in Fritton Wood
During an exceptionally dry spring, a fire broke out in a section of Fritton Wood on 22 May 2011, destroying an area of about 100 square metres of mature woodland. Nine fire engines rushed to the site, and after several hours managed to get the fire under control. The woodland was again open to the public on the following day, with walkers being advised by police to keep to the western parts because fire fighters were still busy dampening the scorched ground and putting out smaller fires that had, once again, flared up.
