7 team members were called to act as drivers and navigators for fire service personnel when another blaze was reported on Ryder’s Hill.

After being stood to for several hours it became apparent that the newly reported blaze must have been a misreported sighting of the earlier fire. Team members and vehicles now heading for home.
