“Busy” Bonfire night for Huntingdon firefighters
A FIREWORK tied to a tree was among the incidents firefighters tackled in what they are describing as a busy Bonfire weekend.
Firefighters were called to Hazelwood Walk in Huntingdon at 6.50pm on Friday to tackle a bonfire in the road.
At 7.40pm crew members were called out again after a mattress was set alight at Thongsley, and 20 minutes later they were sent to the Whaddons to extinguish a fire caused after a firework was tied to a tree.
Firefighters then spent four hours tackling an out-of-control bonfire at Moor Road in Little Staughton.
Andy Tucket, risk manager for Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service, said: “Although firefighters were kept busy over the bonfire night weekend, it is encouraging to see that a minority of these incidents were actual fires.
