Fire crews called to East Hill

FIREFIGHTERS were called to the East Hill yesterday (Sunday) to tackle another fire.

The crews from the station on The Ridge went to the scene just after 1.30pm to put the gorse fire out, which they suspect was deliberate.

Firefighters have been called to the East Hill on several occasions since a large fire swept through the area on the evening of March 21 in which scores of residents were evacuated for up to two hours.
