Crews from Preston Circus attended an address on Tillstone Close, Moulescoomb.
There was a small fire in the kitchen which caused damage to a pan and the cooker.
A CO2 extinguisher was used to put out the fire and a PPV fan cleared the smoke.
How to cook safely
There are several things you can do to prevent fires in the kitchen:
- Make sure you don't get distracted when you are cooking
- Take pans off the heat or turn the heat down if you're called away from the cooker, eg by a phone call
- Take care if you're wearing loose clothing as it can catch fire easily
- Don't cook if you have been drinking alcohol or taken prescription drugs - you may get drowsy or lose concentration
