Herts Fire and Rescue Service has issued a warning after firefighters at two stations received malicious calls last night.
Garston and Wheathampstead fire stations were called to a report of a building fire in Newgate Close, St Albans, - a call which turned out to be malicious.
The call was made shortly before 10pm yesterday.
The fire service tweeted: “Not only is this a criminal offence, it puts lives at risk when valuable resources are committed when they may be required elsewhere.”
Shortly after 9pm last night, firefighters from St Albans attended a genuine call.
