Bout of bonfires

A PAIR of household bonfires got out of hand last night - both occurring within minutes of the other.

Fire cress from Alfreton were called to deal with an uncontrolable bonfire on Nuthall Street, Alfreton at 10pm. And at the same time, on The Chase, Kilburn a garden bonfire spread to a nearby fence, requiring an engine from Belper fire station to calm the flames.

Nobody was hurt in either incident.
