Fire crews from Preston and Penwortham were called to reports of a persons reported incident on Park Walk, Preston in the early evening. When they arrived they found all persons were safely accounted for and that the fire had involved a mobile telephone, but which was out on arrival of firefighters. The mobile had been plugged in to charge when it caught fire. There were no casualties reported and firefighters were not required to use any equipment. We would urge people to be vigilant when charging mobile phones, not to leave them charging longer than they need to and to only use recommended chargers for their device.
