Fire crews tackled two blazes within 12 hours of one another in Wisbech.

A crew was called to a rubbish fire at the back of a pub on Churchill Road at around 6.50pm last night (Thursday December 1).

Firefighters used a hose reel to extinguish the fire, before they were called to another incident just 12 hours later at Windsor Drive.

A crew arrived at around 7am today (December 2) to find a furniture fire.

The fire, which is believed to have been accidental, was extinguished using a hose reel and fire fighters returned to their station by 7.25am.
