Fire caused by discarded cigarette

Lavric Road, Aylesbury

One appliance and crew from Aylesbury attended.

A cigarette had been discarded into a bin, within a flat located in a two-storey building, causing smoke logging. The bin had been removed before they arrived.

The firefighters used positive pressure ventilation to clear smoke from the flat.

We advise anyone who smokes to use a purpose made, heavy ashtray that cannot tip over easily and is made of a material that will not burn.
