chip pan causes early morning blaze in Highbridge
fire crews were called to a blaze at a Highbridge home early today
(Saturday) which had been caused by an unattended chip pan.
Crews from Burnham and Bridgwater rushed to the aptly-named Sparks
Way at 1.43am where the property had been evacuated.
"Crews used breathing apparatus to search and ventilate
the premises," a fire spokesman told Burnham-On-Sea.com.
"The cause of the fire was due to an unattended chip pan
which resulted in light damage by heat and moderate damage by
smoke to the property."
