We have always had issues with fires on wasteland of John Dixon Lane. Last year the fire brigade attended fires in this area on a regular basis. This year the problem has started early with the dry weather Fly Tipping ETC the fire bugs are at it. Our concern is heightened this year for two reasons. Firstly the fires are being started very close to the electric sub station. Secondly the level of Hoax calls that are being made to police and the fire service from the Public call box at the junction of Arnold Road / Hundens Lane. The two issues do not sit well, Hoax call and real fires are not a good combination. while the fire service will and do respond there time could be better served with real emergency and rescue Incidents. Peoples lives are at risk. So we would request residents to be vigilant and to report those responsible to the appropriate people.
