Heath fire devastation captured on video

Heath Fires - Paul DeachThis afternoon I decided to see the devastation caused by the heath fire on Pirbright Ranges for myself and I live broadcast a video stream using the new Periscope App.

The fire is still smouldering and when the wind picks up it is still flaring up in some areas. However, Surrey Fire and Rescue Service are on the scene keeping it well under control.

The Periscope App I used to live stream the video from my mobile phone does have some limitations. For starters it is only possible to shoot in portrait and because I was walking while filming it is a little jumpy. But this is a first for any media outlet in Surrey.
