A cigarette was the cause of a fatal fire which claimed the life of a woman from Stafford, investigators have revealed.
The 53-year-old woman died at her home in Tamar Grove last week, and police and fire officials have now found the blaze was caused by a cigarette which dropped onto her settee, spreading quickly through the downstairs of her home.
Staffordshire Fire and Rescue investigator Brian Griffiths said stray cigarettes and other smoking materials were there third most common cause of accidental house fires in the county.
This was a tragic accident that sadly is becoming all too common.
We cannot stress enough to smokers the importance of ensuring they handle and dispose of their cigarettes safely because as this incident has highlighted the consequences can be devastating.
We’d urge all smokers to ensure that they fully put out their cigarettes when they’ve finished with them and use a heavy ashtray on a flat surface.
Never light up in bed and avoid smoking when you’re tired as it is very easy to fall asleep whilst your cigarette is still burning.
