Date: 15/06/2018
Time: 02:05
Location: Walnut Road, Cockington With Chelston, Torquay
Area: Western
County: Devon

2 fire appliances from Torquay and Paignton were mobilised following a call from the occupant of a flat saying there had been a fire in their kitchen. They were asked to evacuate at the time of call.  

Both crews arrived on scene within minutes of being mobilised and set to work investigating. This incident is now complete and was brought under control at 02:28hrs. The fire started accidentally, after food was left unattended in a frying pan on the hob of a cooker. Damage was confined to the frying pan only and the fire was out on our arrival. There were no casualties and after making the scene safe, and carrying out a full inspection, duty of care was left with the occupier.
