Firefighters called to put out candle at restaurant in Ringwood

Daily Echo: Firefighters rush to put out candle Firefighters rush to put out candle

SIX firefighters raced to a Hampshire restaurant and climbed through an open first storey window... to snuff out a candle.

A passer-by dialled 999 after seeing a flickering candle left alight in Al Trullo, on Christchurch Road, Ringwood.

Restaurant manager Vinnie Kurti said: “We forgot to blow out one candle, which is easily done, but fortunately a passer-by saw it through the window and rang the fire brigade.

“We didn’t know anything about it until the following day when a fireman came in and explained what had happened.”

The emergency response by the fire service cost £292.

I hope Vinnie Kurti will be picking up that bill and make a donation to the Firemens benevolent fund.

Yeah, that's what they charged him for having to come out.
They usually do the same thing to students in halls when they have to keep coming out because they're constantly setting the fire alarms off by burning toast.

HFRS do not charge people for call outs.

Fair enough. Some fire services do though.
