FIREFIGHTERS CALLED TO STREET LIGHT… ALIGHT

Published:

The Isle of Wight Fire and Rescue Service mobilised to reports of a street light on fire in Cowes earlier on today (Thursday).

A single appliance from Cowes Fire Station was called out at 16:38 following a 999 call reporting a street light on fire on Birmingham Road.

However, upon arrival of the retained crew, it was discovered the fire was actually related to a Christmas-style light decoration attached to the lamp post. The electrical fire was already out.

Crews returned to their home station on Victoria Road shortly afterwards.
