Overheating pan prompts callout

Firefighters were on hand to tackle an incident at a house in Douglas this week.

Teams from Douglas, Laxey and Castletown were called to the property on Fairfield Terrace at around 7.25pm on Tuesday to find the home smoke-logged.

An overheating pan left on a hob was found to be the cause and crews remained at the scene for around 30 minutes to ventilate the house.

The Fire Service added the incident is a reminder of the importance of having working smoke alarms to make sure potential risks are detected early and give time to allow people to evacuate the premises.
