LYME Regis and Charmouth fire crews didn’t have to wait long for their first emergency call-out of 2020.

Both crews were called to the Marine Parade in Lyme Regis at 7.38am on New Year’s Day to reports of a beach hut on fire.

The fire had been caused by fireworks left inside one of the huts, which is believed to have self ignited from a ‘still warm’ fire pit also left inside.

Further along Marine Parade, crews also dealt with an unattended drum fire still burning from earlier in the night.

Crews used one hose reel jet to extinguish both fires.
