A spokesman said: "Usually these calls were related to bonfires but when firefighters arrived they found these fires were at an organised event, being supervised properly."
Two calls involved a bonfire having been put out by the time firefighters arrived.
Another calls involved a barbecue, which needed to be safely moved away from a bonfire by firefighters.
Seven of the calls received needed some sort of response.
Most involved unattended bonfires which firefighters put out using aqua packs, beaters, and hoses.
A spokesman said: "It was a fairly busy night for the service but nothing that was bonfire-related was of real significance.
"There were no reports of injuries or of anyone being hurt."
