FIREFIGHTERS in Burnley were called out to four rubbish fires last night.

The first, in Kelly Street, was reported at 8.30pm. Rubbish being burned in a back yard saw the fire spread to the house, damaging a drainpipe.

Another rubbish fire was reported in Hufling Lane at 9.50pm, then another in Hobart Street at 11.40pm.

A skip fire at Hobart Street, reported around 1am, is thought to be linked to the previous rubbish fire, a Fire Service spokesman said.

Well if they'd have let them burn a bit longer they'd have spread and maybe got a bit better :-)
