Fires a go go


Don't ask me why but I was on the 'Bucks Herald' today catching up on some Local news. Now I love local news they some how manage to get a two paragraph quote from 'No comment' and make the most random of events seem fun. However all I managed to gather was that everything seems to be on fire there! And not even logical things but random things like bins and buses!

Exaple one:

Rubbish fire in Aylesbury

FIRE crew called out to a rubbish fire in Aylesbury yesterday evening.
One appliance and crew from Aylesbury attended the fire at 5.11pm on Wigmore Road.

Example two:

Bus fire in Whitchurch

Firefighters were called out after a bus caught fire this morning.
A DRIVER managed to steer a bus to safety after it caught fire in Whitchurch this morning.
Fortunately there were no passengers on board the bus travelling on the A413 at 7.04am

Firefighters from Aylesbury attended the incident and found the Arriva bus already well alight. They used hose reels and breathing apparatus to put out the fire.

The driver steered the bus to the safety of a layby after the bus lost all power. The fire is believed to have started in the engine compartment.

Example 3:

Bin fire at Rabans Lane

AYLESBURY fire crews were called out to a bin fire in Rabans Lane over the weekend.
Suspected arson is thought to have caused the fire in a commercial bin which then spread to a building on Unit 7 Hill and Valley Coffee at 3.02am on Sunday February 3.

One engine and crew from Aylesbury were called to the scene where firefighters used one hose reel to extinguish the flames.


Firefighters were also called to a chip pan fire on High Street, Aylesbury on Saturday February 2 at 2.05pm.

Two appliances and crews from Aylesbury were called to the scene and firefighters used two sets of breathing apparatus. The area was ventilated and a Home Fire Risk Check was carried out.


I have only ever been to Aylesbury once but I swear none of it was on fire. Clearly each county has it 'thing' Buckinghamshire has fire, London has theft and Gloucestershire has flooding.
