It has been a busy 24 hours for fire crews in North Hertfordshire with the good weather leading to a spate of fires out in the open – some of which were set deliberately.

They also used hoses to put out a bin fire on Greenways in Stevenage and a car fire in Rutherford Close. They used hoses to put out a small fire in Woolners Way around 6pm yesterday evening and extinguish a fire involving equipment in a play park at Stevenage Road in Knebworth. One fire engine from Stevenage was also sent to tackle a fire in the open at Berkeley Close in Stevenage around 11pm.

Fire crews helped paramedics get access to a property in Minehead Way, Stevenage around 1am this morning and put out a van on fire in Collenswood Road, Stevenage around 4am.
