Warning After Pan Fire
Firefighters were called to a fire involving a pan of oil at a property after smoke alarms alerted people.
Our Service was called on a Tuesday afternoon to a road off Hoylake Road, Birkenhead.
Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus entered the property with a hose reel jet and carried out a search to make sure no-one was inside.
Watch Manager Jim Murray, who attended the call-out with firefighters from Birkenhead Community Fire Station, said: “There was a lot of smoke in the property when we arrived and we had to gain entry through the rear kitchen window. The smoke was from a pan of oil that had been left on an ignited cooker ring.
“Smoke alarms activated at the property and alerted neighbours to the fire.
“We advise people to have working smoke alarms on each level of their home. Fires involving cooking can produce a lot of smoke quickly which can disorientate people and cause unconsciousness.”
Firefighters removed the pan of oil from the cooker made sure there was no further fire spread and then ventilated the property to clear smoke.
A fire appliance from Birkenhead Community Fire Station and one from Wallasey Community Fire Station attended the call-out on September 1.
Concert Square Fire
Firefighters tackled a fire involving a wooden structure in Concert Square, Liverpool.
Our Service was called at 4.48pm on a Thursday to Concert Square. Two fire appliances were sent to the scene.
A main jet and two hose reels were used by firefighters to tackle the fire.
The fire was extinguished by 5.10pm and damping down operations were carried out.
Watch Manager Michael Cain, who attended the call-out with White Watch firefighters at Kensington Community Fire Station and White Watch at Toxteth
Community Fire Station, said: “The fire involved a timber structure in Concert Square and firefighters worked quickly at the scene to extinguish the fire and stop it spreading.”
The fire involved a burger bar which was around four metres long and six metres wide. No-one was injured.
The suspected cause of the fire was accidental after food oils caught fire which then spread to the timber structure.
Our Fire Control room received nine calls about the fire on September 3. Firefighters had left the scene by 5.43pm.
