Johnstone Fire Engine Rally

Renfrewshire's annual Fire Engine Rally had a change of venue this year.

Past events have taken place in Paisley, but this year the rally moved to Johnstone starting with a parade from the Fire Station to Houston Square in the town centre.

A great crowd turned out to see the current and heritage vehicles.

The event was a paradise for all lovers, both young and old, of big red fire engines.

Along with the fun and flashing blue lights, the Fire Brigade had a serious message about the dangers of using chip pans. A pan with a small amount of oil was heated until the oil ignited.

A cup of water was then poured into the pan.

What happened next was quite frightening!
