Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service is asking motorists to be more considerate when parking in the street.
The move follows an incident in Kettering.
An appliance struggled to get to a blaze because of vehciles parked on either side of the residential road and close to a junction.
The Highway Code currently states: “Do not stop or park anywhere you would prevent access for Emergency Services…and do not stop or park opposite or within 10 metres (32 feet) of a junction, except in an authorised parking space.”
