Fire on cooker hob

Barn View, Edlesborough

Three appliances and crews from Bedfordshire and one from Aylesbury attended, along with an officer.

The fire was out when they arrived.

The firefighters used:

  • Two sets of breathing apparatus
  • One hose reel jet
  • One covering jet
  • One safety jet
  • A positive pressure ventilation fan

We find that cooking appliances are a common cause of accidental house fires, and many could be avoided if safe storage and cooking practices are followed in the kitchen.

Please don't underestimate the benefit of having working smoke alarms in your home - if a fire does happen these devices can provide an early warning.
