Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service is appealing to those planning a bonfire on their property to let the them know in advance after a series of false alarm calls.
Over the last few days there have been 20 unnecessary call outs after gorse, heathland or bonfires have been deliberately lit and are under control.
The service’s fire control act on 999 calls, sending firefighters when crews are not actually needed.
If you are planning a large bonfire or controlled burning in Cornwall, inform the Fire and Rescue Service before you start by dialling 01872 320205.
