Bedroom fire

Bicester Road, Aylesbury

Two appliances and crews from Aylesbury attended.

A fire in a second-floor bedroom was out when they arrived.

The firefighters removed a mattress that had been involved in the fire and dampened it down. They also provided advice.

The fire is believed to have been caused by an occupant smoking in bed.

Despite the overall number of people smoking cigarettes or tobacco falling, fires caused by smoking materials result in more deaths than any other type of fire.

We provide some tips on how to stay safe if you smoke in the house, or know someone who does, visit our Smoking page, within our Safety Advice Hub.
