The Isle of Wight Fire and Rescue Service have been and gone from a property in Wootton this evening (Thursday) following a fourth call out to the address in as many weeks.
3 fire appliances – 2 from Newport and 1 from East Cowes – rushed to St Edmunds Walk at just before 19:00 following a 999 call reporting a house fire.
However, it was quickly established by the first crews on scene that the call was infact a false alarm – a reoccuring incident at the bungalow in question.
Resources have now stood down from the incident and are available to respond to a real emergency should the need arise.
Island Echo understands an elderly individual lives at the property and that fire officers are looking into the situation with the appropriate agencies.
