Microwave oven fire at house in Preston

Date: 24/12/2018

Time: 15:11:00

Address: Molyneux Court, Preston

Incident Number: 1812006981

Two fire engines and crews from Preston were assigned to the incident at which a microwave had burned food, generating smoke, which firefighters extracted with a portable fan unit. The occupier had already been rescued by a carer, suffering the effects of breathing smoke and firefighters administered oxygen to the casualty, who was subsequently attended to by paramedics but was not hospitalised. Good reason to pay attention to our Microwave Oven Fire Safety Campaign advice.
