Kitchen fire - Dogsthorpe - Peterborough

Crews from Dogsthorpe and Stanground were called to a kitchen fire in Wesleyan Road.

Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used a hose reel to extinguish the fire and a positive pressure ventilation fan to clear the smoke before returning to their stations by 3.34pm.

The fire had started after an item left on top of the cooker had caught fire.

A spokesperson for Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service said: “Please ensure you keep cooker tops clear when cooking.”
