Good night time routine stops kitchen fire spreading

A family were saved from a fire in their home thanks a good night time routine preventing it from spreading.

Crews from Wokingham Road and Wokingham fire stations went to a house on Greenacres Lane, Winnersh, after Thames Valley Fire Control Service (TVFCS) received a 999 call at 5.40am on Tuesday 28 March.

Firefighters arrived to find a well-developed fire in the kitchen.

The family were alerted to the blaze by a neighbour who spotted the smoke and knocked on the door to wake them.

While there were working smoke alarms in the property, the fire was contained so well by the closure of the kitchen door that they did not sound before the smoke was spotted.
