FIRE-FIGHTERS in Cornwall were called into action three times yesterday evening, tackling a blaze at a derelict building in Camborne, a car fire in Helston and a cooker fire in Newquay.

Two crews from Camborne Community Fire Station received a call at 6.05pm after smoke was spotted coming from an empty property at Tuckingmill.

They used specialist breathing equipment and a high pressure hose reel to extinguish the fire, believed to have been started deliberately. Police were notified.

A fire service spokesman said: “The fire was confined to some tyres and arson is suspected.”

Just over an hour later, at 7.25pm, two crews from Newquay attended an accidental cooker fire at a flat in Tolcarne Road.

They strapped on breathing apparatus and used a hose reel to quickly extinguish the flames. A ventilation fan was also used to remove smoke from the property.

The final job of the night fell to a Helston crew, which was called to a car fire on Clodgy Lane at around 9pm.

They quickly put out the fire, which is thought to have started accidentally.
