Halloween fire calls 'every 90 seconds'
Published Monday, 01 November 2010
An emergency call to the Fire Service was received every 90 seconds at one point over the Halloween night celebrations.
Crews across Northern Ireland responded to 277 calls over the 24-hour period - the majority of which involved bonfires, rubbish and gorse.
According to the NIFRS, the number of calls was well below average for Hallowe'en.
Area Commander Dale Ashford added: "We are glad to report that our crews have been able to carry out their duties with very little in the way of disturbance."
