Supplies Switched On In South Of Town First
Fires At Ten-Storey Flat Block
Firefighters reckon lives are being put at risk by those who have deliberately started a series of fires at the bottom of a ten-storey block of flats.
Bin bags left lying around have been set alight three times in the space of a month at St Catherine's Court near Castle Street in Northampton town centre.
The most recent fire happened on the evening of Sunday 24 July 2011 which saw bin bags that had been left in the flats lobby being deliberately set alight.
Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service reckon the fires are putting lives at risk, both by endangering those living in the flats, and taking fire engines away from fires elsewhere.
Station Manager Kevin Hornsey from Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service has been telling Heart: "We're pulling fire engines across from all different parts of the town and obviously where there is real need for people, they're not going to be available and there readily able to deploy."
Firefighters are urging people living in the flats to make the little bit extra effort to put rubbish in the bin store they have a key for, away from where it could be set alight.
