Timely re­minder to check air-con

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

FIRE-FIGHT­ERS from the Air­lie Beach sta­tion were called to an air­con­di­tion­ing fire at a res­i­den­tial prop­ery in Can­non­vale around lunchtime yes­ter­day (Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 2).

Of­fi­cer in charge of the Air­lie Beach Fire Sta­tion Cameron Corneal said trades­men work­ing nearby were able to as­sist the owner of the prop­erty and ex­tin­guish the blaze be­fore fire-fight­ers ar­rived.

“We ba­si­cally ven­ti­lated the house and got rid of the smoke,” he said.

Of­fi­cer Corneal said this was a timely re­minder for res­i­dents to have their air-con­di­tion­ing units checked by pro­fes­sion­als ahead of the warmer weather.

He also ad­vised peo­ple to check and clean their fil­ters af­ter the winter months of no use.
