The Home Office publishes figures on accidental fires started by barbecues in table FIRE0605, available here: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/fire-statistics-data-tables#cause-of-fire

The figures relate to accidental fires started by all types of barbecues as the Home Office does not specifically collect data on disposable barbecues.
