IT WAS a busy night across the county with fire crews being called to a number of incidents.

The next call came in at 7.45pm when a fire crew from Christchurch were sent to reports of a fire in the grass on Boscombe Overcliff Drive.

On arrival this was found to be an attended barbecue and fire safety was given - crews left at 8.01pm.

Later, three fire crews from Westbourne, Redhill and Poole attended a fire on the heath at Alder Hills at 8.01pm. 

After investigating the area where the fire was reported, it was found to be a false alarm due to someone using a camping stove.

Christchurch firefighters were sent to Mudeford Quay at 11.30pm last night. 

The crew extinguished a bin fire at the Quay and were back on the road by midnight. 

Firefighters from Springbourne were sent to Oxford Road to a fire of unknown origin in the early hours of the morning, at 1.37am. 

On arrival the crew found it was caused by fumes from a generator and left at 1.53am.

Finally, two people were rescued from a lift on Holdenhurst Road at 1.54am by crew from Springbourne fire station.

The crew were in attendance within 60-seconds of Control taking the 999 call.
