Always a busy night for the fire brigade.
Cork City Fire Brigade had their hands full on Halloween night, including one major incident at a derelict house in Blarney.
This morning, the brigade tweeted: “A very busy Halloween was had last night by Red watch Crews from Ballyvolane, Ballincollig and HQ, including a water tanker attended a derelict building on fire in Blarney. Crews battled the fire for several hours and thankfully there were no injuries.”
Elsewhere, it was reported that “crews from around the city have dealt with several incidents this evening including some bonfires. We want everyone to have a safe night, and thank the public for their continued support as we protect communities.”
While Halloween is always a busy night for emergency services, Cork City Fire Brigade also had to contend with the usual call-outs, including “a house fire, RTC’s, road hazards, shed fire, rubbish fires, AFA’s, cardiac and ambulance assists.”
