Reminder to take care when cooking


Date: 15th August, 2019

Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service is reminding people to take care when cooking, especially when late at night and tired.

Firefighters were called out at 1.41am this morning (15 August) for a kitchen fire caused by pizza and chips being put into the oven by the occupant, who then fell asleep.

Group Manager Katie Cornhill said: “This person was extremely fortunate that a neighbour saw smoke coming from the kitchen and raised the alarm, rousing them and also calling 999. There was smoke throughout the property, and this could have proved fatal had they not been woken up. We would urge anyone wanting a late night snack to either get a takeaway or not cook.”

The Service has the following top tips for staying safe in the kitchen:
