Crews tackle Mynydd Cilgwyn mountain gorse fire

Three fire crews have tackled a large gorse fire on a mountainside in Gwynedd.

North Wales Fire and Rescue service said around 16 fire-fighters dealt with the blaze at Mynydd Cilgwyn, near Penygroes.

Some people living in Carmel feared strong winds in the area may have led to an evacuation of village homes nearby.

But the fire service said the blaze was out put shortly after 19:00 GMT.
