Warning after saucepan fire
Firefighters have warned about kitchen blazes after they had to attend one in Kennington. It happened at Ashborne Close when a saucepan was left unattended on the stove. The smoke alarm warned the woman occupant and she was able to put it out.
Ashford firefighters made sure the scene was safe.
Watch manager Jim Smart said: “We would advise people not to leave cooking unattended. They should also not try to put out a fire, but get out of the property and call us.”
