Firefighters called out 277 times on Halloween night

  • 10-31-2010

_49728959_firebrigade3_226.jpgThe fire service responded to 277 emergency calls across Northern Ireland on Halloween night.

Most incidents involved gorse, rubbish and bonfires. At one point fire control was handling a call every 90 seconds.

Although there was a slight increase on the number of calls from last year, the number of call-outs was down on the Halloween average of recent years.

A spokesman said firefighters had been able to carry out their duties with very little in the way of disturbance.
