Fire chiefs have warned that hoax calls cost lives after false reports of a fire at Burnley General Hospital.

One crew was sent to the hospital at 10-15pm on Sunday but on arrival could not find one.

Crew manager Rick Courtney said: “Malicious calls cost lives. Fire Engines may be required elsewhere in the district for critical incidents.

“If you know of any malicious calls being made, contact Crime-stoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
