Smoke alarm alerted neighbour to kitchen fire

Wed, 04 May 2011

A fire in Cronk y Berry was caused by a hob being turned on accidently when shopping bags were placed on it.


Fire crews were called to Cronk y Berry Avenue yesterday afternoon after a neighbour heard the smoke alarm in the property.


No occupants were in the house at the time except for a dog, which didn't appear to be harmed by the incident.


Officers spent around 45 minutes at the scene.


It's believed the damage would have been much worse without a working smoke alarm.
