    Oh this is so sad :( my heart goes out to everyone. You say there’s nothing suspicious. Do you know how it was caused?

    That great ‘catch-all’ phrase – “nothing suspicious”.

    It’s important to remember not to keep anything combustible in the allotment sheds at this time of year – at least if you’re not planning to visit for some time. The less the temptation – the less the chance of something happening, even if it is an accident.
