Rhosgadfan hillside fire brought under control

A big fire has been brought under control on the hillside at Rhosgadfan, near Caernarfon.

Three separate fires broke out on an area of gorse and heather at Lon Wen at around 3.15am on Saturday morning (13th April).

Four crews from Bangor, Llanberis and Caernarfon managed to extinguish the fires at just after 7am, despite their efforts being hampered by strong winds overnight.

The A4085 between Rhosgadfan and Waunfawr was closed while crews tackled the blaze. The cause of the fires remains unknown.
