Cornwall fire crews work together in "busy spell"

Cornwall fire crews work together in "busy spell"

Published by the Pirate FM News Team at 6:03am 8th September 2018. (Updated at 8:03am 8th September 2018)

Fire crews have been working together during a "busy spell" for Bude.

The team took to Facebook to keep the community up to date with call outs.

In the last few days the fire service has been called to a road traffic collision to deal with a fuel leak.

The following day the alarm was raised when a large container washed up on Black Rock beach. 

It was feared the item was leaking an unknown substance. It turned out to be just an old mooring buoy. 

As the crew attended this incident another call came in to put out a tractor fire. 

The crew has thanked Wadebridge Community Fire Station for covering while the team were out on shouts.

"It's been quiet for us lately - but we've had a busy spell! Last night we attended an RTC to deal with a fuel leak.

"Today we were sent to a large container washed up on Black Rock beach; leaking an unknown substance.

"Thankfully this turned out to be nothing more than an old mooring buoy.

"As we were removing the item from the beach, a 'proceed to' call came in to attend a tractor fire.

"Thank you to Wadebridge Community Fire Station for covering our town whilst we dealt with other incidents!"
