On Sunday 5 November 2023, between the hours of 5pm until 11pm, Lancashire Fire and Rescue received 107 calls regarding incidents across the county.

Historically, the bonfire night period is an extremely busy period for the service but between these hours, we responded to 50 fires.

The majority of these were small fires but the service was called to a large vehicle fire in Thornton-Cleveleys which required eight fire engines to extinguish. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

We would like to thank the people of Lancashire for their help in keeping the public and firefighters safe this evening.
