Firefighters were called to several incidents last night.

Halifax firefighters dealt with five bin fires in the Pellon, Boothtown and Claremount areas.

The Illingworth crew attended organised bonfires at Abbey Park and Furness which went ahead without problems.

That crew was also called to Denholme twice to put out bonfires which had been left unattended.

Elland firefighters had the quietest night with no callouts.

The Brighouse crew attended a road accident and false alarm but no bonfire incidents.

Todmorden firefighters were called to a bonfire at Longfield Close but no action was needed.

At 7.30 pm last night the crew was called to a house at Broadstones Street, Todmorden, which suffered smoke damage from a fire in the living room.
