Fire crews tackle three fires in the open including arson incident at college


FIRE crews were called out three times yesterday evening to tackle fires in the open including an arson incident at the rear of a Warrington college building, which had the potential to be far more serious.

At 6pm firefighters from Birchwood were called following reports of a fire involving rubbish near Jubilee Way.

On arrival the crew found fire involving plastic blocks and tyres at the rear of one of Warrington & Vale Royal college’s educational units off Jubilee way.
One hose reel jet was used to extinguish the flames.
The area was then damped down and a thermal imaging camera was used to check for hot spots.
The fire affected part of the exterior of the building. Luckily the interior was unaffected, although there was potential for the deliberate fire to have far more serious consequences
Earlier, shortly before 6pm firefighters from Warrington were called following reports of a fire involving a small bonfire in woodland near Westbrook Centre.
A water backpack was used to extinguish the flames.
Finally, at 10.20pm a fire crew from Lymm was called following reports of a fire in the open off Swineyard Lane at High Legh.
On arrival, the crew found around three tonnes of straw well alight.
One hose reel jet extinguish the flames.
