Police are investigating a suspected arson incident after a firework caused a garden blaze on the night of Diwali.

At 7:25pm on Sunday, November 12, emergency services were notified of a fire on Humber Way in Slough.

Two crews from Langley Fire Station were sent to the scene and found a shed well alight.

A hose reel was used to extinguish the fire.

A Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service spokesperson said: "The fire is believed to be deliberate, caused by fireworks.

"Crews were on the scene for just over an hour, before handing over to Thames Valley Police."

Thames Valley Police added that the fire spread to neighbouring fencing.

A Thames Valley Police spokesperson said: "Nobody was injured and no arrests have been made.

"Anybody with any information is urged to contact Thames Valley Police on 101 or online, quoting reference 43230509351."

The homeowner said he has a "lot of clearing up to do" following the fire and did not wish to speak to the Observer further.

Tony from Shamrocks, situated behind the houses said he believed the incident was caused by a misfired rocket.

He added that there should be training needed behind igniting fireworks.

Last night was Diwali, the Hindu festival of light, with dozens of households setting their own fireworks off.

The law around Diwali fireworks states that none should be let off after 1am.

Tony added that the fireworks this year were "over the top" with some being let off as late as 2am which he said was "ridiculous".

"It's terrible - it's right outside the window," he added.

"There should be some sort of legislation on how you sell them."

Many turned to social media groups last night, with concerns around pets, babies, children and those with mental health issues such as PTSD being impacted by the fireworks.
