Monday night proved to be an extra busy one for the firefighters at Louth Fire Station, with a number of incidents through the evening.
The crew’s HQ received 11 calls to flooding, including in Louth, as well as Horncastle, Stamford and Scrub Hill (near Coningsby).
A 6.50pm the crew attended a fire alarm sounding at King Edward VI Grammar School in Crowtree Lane.
But the call proved to be a false alarm, with the sounding caused by a water leak through a detector head.
Shortly before midnight, at 11.51pm, the crew were scrambled to Carlton Road in nearby South Reston.
On arrival they discovered fire damage to a traffic cone and used soil from the verge to put out the fire.
