Incident - Domestic Property Fire

Date: 03/03/2018
Time: 06:34
Location: St Albans Place, Taunton
Area: Somerset
County: Somerset

2 fire appliances from Taunton were mobilised following a call from the occupant of a property saying their fire alarm was sounding and confirmed there was smoke in the kitchen. All occupants had safely evacuated at the time of call.

Shortly after arriving and 2 BA wearers entering the property to investigate, our crews confirmed the property was heavily smoke logged, quickly establishing the source to be a dressing gown that had been accidentally left on the cooker hob.

1 hose reel jet was used to extinguish the fire, before a positive pressure ventilation fan was used to clear the property of the smoke. There was minor fire damage to the dressing gown only and fortunately no casualties. Once the area was made safe and fire safety advice given, duty of care for the socially rented property was left with the occupants.
