Wildfires are unplanned or uncontrolled fires in the countryside or open areas in towns and cities. They often spread quickly through plants that are dry and easy to burn such as gorse and heather.
If you see a fire:
• If you see a fire in the countryside, report it immediately to the Fire & Rescue Service.
• Do not attempt to tackle fires that cannot be put out with a bucket of water.
• Leave the area as soon as possible.
• If you see someone setting fires, report it to the PSNI.
