Fire crews respond to kitchen blaze
by Tom Martin

FIREFIGHTERS were called out to a kitchen blaze in Litherland after a pan of food caught fire.

Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service were sent to a house on Ford Lane at around 3pm on Tuesday, September 30 after neighbours heard a smoke alarm.

The pan was severely damaged from the flames but officials managed to contain the fire and there was only smoke damage caused to the rest of the kitchen.

A Watch Manager Ged Knock, who attended the call-out, said: “The suspected cause of the fire was a pan of food left cooking unattended.

”Due to the swift reactions of firefighters and the smoke alarms alerting a neighbour to the fire, damage from the fire was limited to the pan of food.

“The pan was still smoking when we arrived but the flames had died out. Firefighters ensured the fire was completely out and cleared smoke from the property.

”We advise people have working smoke alarms on each level of their home.“
