Kitchen fire - West Chesterton ward - Cambridge
24/01/2017 - 1.28PM
At 1.28pm on Tuesday (24) two crews from Cambridge were called to a fire on Bateson Road in West Chesterton ward, Cambridge.
Firefighters arrived to find a fire in the kitchen of a property. Wearing breathing apparatus they extinguished the fire using a hose reel and a jet. They returned to their station by 2.50pm.
The cause of the fire was accidental.
A fire service spokesman said: “It is important to remember to switch the cooker off completely, as it is very easy to accidentally knock the hob switch and turn it on, particularly in a busy house with young children and animals.
“Also make sure the hob area is kept completely clear of clutter and never use it as a storage area.”
