Call to fire service turned out to be hoax

A call to the fire service turned out to be a hoax.

A fire crew from Richmond was sent to a report of a fire in the open in Marne Road, Catterick Garrison, at about 6pm on Monday.

However, they arrived to find no signs of a fire.

A spokesperson for North Yorkshire Fire and rescue Service said: “This was a malicious call – no incident located.”
