Fire crews report '˜busy' Bonfire Night
In Preston firefighters dealt with more than a dozen incidents, although only two of them were bonfire-related.
“It’s been a busy night,” said a spokesman today. “We were into double figures for call-outs.
“But not many were to bonfires, only a couple. The rest were all sorts of calls, like rubbish fires and helping the ambulance service gain access to a property where an old man had fallen.
“Thankfully there were no serious incidents.”
In Lancaster firefighters also reported a busy night.
A fire brigade spokesman there said: “We were out quite a few times, but not to anything major. Just a number of small fires in the open.”
