Strong smell of ammonia in utility room

Park Grove, Little Chalfont

One appliance and crew from Amersham and one from Gerrards Cross attended, along with an officer.

A strong smell of ammonia was detected issuing from a domestic utility room. One man and one woman were out of the building when the firefighters arrived.

They used:

  • Two sets of breathing apparatus
  • A gas monitor
  • Small tools
  • Gauntlets
  • A positive pressure ventilation fan
  • An environmental pack

The smell was believed to be coming from a refrigeration unit. The unit was removed and the property ventilated.
