Firefighters called after another blaze at Parkhall Country Park



Firefighters have been called to yet another blaze at Parkhall County Park.

Crews were called to the car park at the popular beauty spot after someone had started a fire.

It comes just days after a huge 4,000 sqm blaze sent smoke billowing across the area.

A Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said: “We were called at about 5.05pm on Tuesday (20 April) to reports of a blaze near the car park at the top of Parkhall Country Park in Adderley Green.

“A crew from Longton attended by 5.15pm and used back packs and beaters to contend with the blaze which had consumed some grassland.

“The fire was extinguished by 5.30pm and the cause was thought to be deliberate ignition.”
