Kitchen fire

Kernow Crescent, Fishermead, Milton Keynes

One appliance and crew from Broughton and one from West Ashland attended.

Unattended cooking left in the kitchen of a first-floor flat, within a three-storey block, had caused smoke logging.

The firefighters used:

  • Two sets of breathing apparatus
  • One hose reel jet
  • A positive pressure ventilation fan
  • Small gear

The firefighters installed smoke alarms.

Incidents involving kitchens are a common thing for our firefighters to attend. Many fires could be avoided if safe storage and cooking practices are followed - you can find out what advice we provide in our online safety hub.
