False alarm after report of house on fire

A report of a house on fire turned out to be a false alarm.

Firefighters from Colburn and Richmond were called out at about 6.40pm on Friday to Catterick Garrison after a member of the public reported seeing what they thought was a house on fire.

Fire crews arrived to find it was a false alarm due to it being a bonfire in the rear garden of the premises safely contained in a brazier.

Firefighters gave advise to the occupant and left the scene.
