One appliance and crew from Newport Pagnell and one from Broughton attended.
Logs stored next to a woodburner in a ground floor living room had caught light, causing smoke logging to the house.
The firefighters used:
- Two sets of breathing apparatus
- One hose reel jet
- A thermal imaging camera
- Small gear
If you use a woodburner, open fire or kitchen range, please consider our safety advice.
Heat from the fire can transfer to combustibles if stored or left too close, so always leave a good space between, as heat could transfer through direct contact and cause a fire.
