Unattended pan causes smoke logging

Cobden Street, Lawrence Hill

Crews from Temple and Kingswood fire stations were called to a small fire in a residential property. 

Firefighters in breathing apparatus gained access to the unattended property using small gear. 

They used one high-pressure hose reel to extinguish the fire, caused by the pan boiling dry and filling the property with smoke.  

The cause of the fire is thought to be accidental.
