Kitchen Fire At St Helier Tower-block

Firefighters have put out a fire at a St Helier block of flats.

Two crews were called to Plaisant Court just before 9am when an alarm was sounding and smoke could be seen coming from a third floor window.

No one was at home at the time.

A plastic chopping board left on the hob had caught fire.

The blaze was put out quickly using a foam extinguisher.

“This once again highlights the importance of a working smoke detector to raise the alarm, which in this case allowed us to deal with a small fire quickly before it developed into a larger, more serious incident”  -  Blue Watch Commander Bailey-Walker
