When fire crews arrived at the scene they found a fire in the kitchen of the property after some items left on top of the hob had caught fire.

Turning on the wrong cooker hob is easily done and often radiated heat can ignite any combustibles that are stored too close too. Avoid having a fire by keeping your cooker hob clean and clear.
