Fire in flat

Gatensbury Place, Princes Risborough

One appliance and crew from Aylesbury attended.

Small fire in ground-floor flat caused by plastic item being left on an oven hob.

The firefighters isolated the oven and used a bucket of water. They provided advice to the occupant and natural ventilation was used to clear smoke.

Some of the advice we offer is to remember to keep anything flammable well away from ovens and hobs, and to always switch off heat generating devices when not in use.
