Firefighters were called out to help the owner of a tree that was alight in the town on Saturday.

A crew from Boston went to reports of a conifer tree on fire in Ingram Road just before 1.15pm.

The owner was able to put out the fire using a garden hose and after carrying out an inspection, a Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue spokesman said a “carelessly discarded cigarette” was the cause.
