Address: Windholme, Lancaster
Incident Number: 1809000570
Two fire engines and crews, from Lancaster and Morecambe, responded to a fire call at which a chip pan had been left on a hob and the contents had ignited. The occupant of the ground floor flat had moved the pan outdoors and had burned his hand doing so. Ambulance paramedics were called to attend to the casualty and firefighters used a portable fan unit to extract the smoke from the premises.
Our advice is not to move burning chip pans, but to get outside without delay and dial 999.
