Kitchen fire in three-storey block of flats


One appliance and crew from Broughton, two from West Ashland and one from Newport Pagnell attended, along with an officer.

An alarm was sounding within a three-storey block of flats, when they arrived. The fire was located in a kitchen area of a flat on the second floor.

The firefighters used:

  • Four sets of breathing apparatus
  • Two hose reels
  • A positive pressure ventilation fan
  • A thermal imaging camera
  • A short extension ladder

A turntable ladder was used to check the outside of the building.

The electricity supply to the affected flat was isolated. The flat was around 70 per damaged by smoke and 20 per cent damaged by fire.
