Rabbit with its tails on fire runs into barn

Bugs bun-fire in shed


A RABBIT whose tail caught fire as it hid in a bonfire raced into a cricket hut and BURNED it down.

The £60,000 blaze wrecked the hut and equipment inside.

The volunteer gardener who lit the fire at Devizes Cricket Club in Wiltshire spotted the blazing rabbit dashing into the WOODEN groundsman’s hut.

He ran to find it but the bunny had disappeared. Half an hour later he saw smoke seeping out of the hut.

After the blaze there was no sign of the bunny’s body and club members were left wondering if it had hopped to safety.

Committee member Richard Read said: “If the rabbit did die, he’s probably chewing a carrot in heaven.”

Culprit ... rabbit

Fire station manager Pip Flowers, 41, said: “We couldn’t find a body, but the corner of the hut was so charred, it may have disappeared without trace.

“On the other hand, we did find a hole it may have escaped through.”

Now the club are appealing for donations to replace their lost equipment.
