Port Lincoln MFS has warned people to be careful of what they put in rubbish bins following a fire at a residence on Friday night.

Two MFS appliances were called to a residence on Alexander Crescent at about 8.36pm and on arrival found the fire was in a couple of wheelie bins in the back area.

The fire was mostly extinguished on arrival and had been kept from spreading from the bins.

The cause was unknown but residents are urged to take care when putting any igniting sources in bins.
