Incident - Fire in Sheltered Accomodation

Date: 13/09/2017
Time: 13:20
Location: Manor Way, Totnes
Area: Western
County: Devon

3 fire appliances from Paignton and Buckfastleigh were mobilised following a call from a careline, monitoring sheltered accommodation at the above location, who had received a smoke detector activation. After speaking to the elderly occupant they confirmed there had been a fire in the grill pan, she had suffered a fall but did have a neighbour with her at the time.

Shortly after arriving and confirming that the grill pan was out on our arrival, the elderly lady was assessed by an ambulance technician, who confirmed that she was ok and had not sustained any injuries. Damage was confined to the grill pan only. We made the area safe and settled the occupant before leaving.
