    I think that is over near scout road which selfishly is way away from the family home. But thinking most importantly of the evacuations I think it should be OK as the scrub is not too tall and can be dampened near to any homes
    Well that's what I understand and hope

    No ones homes have been evacuated. The fire is all but our but the fire is travelling underground and burning through the peat layer.

    Public are the biggest issue still attempting to get access onto the moors for photographs!
