The local fire brigade not only lead the parade in a fire-engine they also gave fire safety demonstrations throughout the afternoon. Explaining the dangers of chip pan fires they gave this dramatic show of what happens when water is put on the flames. The explosion was sufficient on this occasion to blow the pan off the hob.
