Blaze breaks out at fire station

Fire fighters had to respond to a fire at one of their own fire stations recently.

Crews were called to the part-time fire station in Londonderry after a smoke alarm alerted a local retained firefighter. Crews quickly dealt with the fire

Although there was some damage the fire station was able to resume normal service.

In a statement, Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service said:

“We want to use this incident to emphasise that fire can happen to anyone at anytime in any building. Fire doesn’t discriminate and it shows the importance of thinking fire safety first, working smoke alarms and the swift actions of our local fire crews in protecting our whole community from the dangers of fire.”
