Incident Number: 1911004920
Two fire crews from Chorley and one fire crew from Horwich, Greater Manchester attended a fire involving a domestic property on Chorley Road, Adlington. The fire was in the bathroom of the property and caused by clothes being placed on a wall mounted heater to dry. The fire was quickly extinguished by firefighters using one hose reel. Two firefighters wearing breathing apparatus escorted a male casualty from the property where he was then taken to hospital for precautionary checks by ambulance crews.
The occupant was alerted to the fire by a smoke detector which had recently been fitted by LFRS in the upstairs landing as part of a Home Fire Safety Check visit.
LFRS request that the public do not place any combustible items on heating appliances in the home, check their smoke detector regularly or call 0800 169 11 25 to seek further fire safety advice and information on our free Home Fire Safety Check service.
