Clothes left on hot cooker cause fire at Brean holiday apartment

Two fire crews from Burnham-On-Sea rushed to Brean on Sunday evening (July 22nd) after a blaze in a holiday apartment, caused by clothing being left on a hot cooker.

Firerfighters were called to Pontins at 8.24pm after the park's staff raised the alarm.

"On their arrival, the crews confirmed the fire had been extinguished by site staff using foam extinguishers," a spokesman told "Crews used a thermal imaging camera to ensure the fire was out."

"The fire was caused accidentally by clothes being put on a cooker which was on. The clothes were destroyed and the room was damaged by the fire and smoke."
