Flat fire - Wisbech - Fenland

A crew from Wisbech was called to a flat fire in King Street, Wisbech.

Firefighters forced entry to a second floor flat. The flat was smoke-filled and two firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used a hose reel to extinguish a fire that was contained to the stove area.

The cause of the fire was accidental by person, believed to have been started by cooking that had been left unattended when the resident left the property. 

The crew returned to station by 10.25pm.
