It's Bonfire Night

November the 5th is Bonfire Night in Britain. There are many bonfire parties. People watch fireworks and light fires!

Bonfire Night is fun, but it can be dangerous – that’s why it’s an important night for the fire fighters. They stop many dangerous fires.

But the fire fighters in London are not working on Bonfire Night. They are on strike. Why? The fire fighters must work new hours. Some fire fighters think that they will not have a job.

People aren’t happy. “We are not safe,” they say. The British Government isn’t happy. “It’s dangerous,” says Prime Minister David Cameron.

Would you like to be a fire fighter? Why?
