Kitchen fire in St Leonards

East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service were called at 10.11 on 5 December 2014 to reports of a kitchen fire in St Leonards.

Crews attended an address on London Road and used breathing apparatus, a hose reel jet and firefighting foam to put out the fire.

The fire has been investigated and was accidental.

Smoke alarm advice 

This was the second fire in as many days in the Hastings and St Leonards area and locals are being urged to check they have working smoke alarms.

The more alarms you have, the safer you'll be - as long as they are working - so make sure you test them weekly.

You should have a minimum of one alarm on each floor. However, if you have only one alarm and two floors, put it somewhere you'll be able to hear it when you're asleep.

If you have a large electrical appliance, like a computer, in any of the bedrooms, you should fit a smoke alarm there too. You should also make sure you test it weekly.
