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.
