False alarms for firefighters

FIREFIGHTERS were called into action several times earlier this week when the incidents turned out to be false alarms.

On Monday night they attended an alarm ringing in Mill Port, and on Tuesday were called out twice to Sainsbury’s petrol station. There was also a report of a building alight in Guthrie Drive on Tuesday morning, but firefighters were unable to trace any sign of a blaze.

On Wednesday afternoon a crew answered an emergency call to a chimney fire in Liddesdale Crescent.
