Firefighters are warning of the dangers of leaving cooking unattended, after an 81-year-old man in Mold had a lucky escape from a chip pan fire at his home.

Three fire crews were called to the property earlier this afternoon, after the man returned to his kitchen to find a chip pan alight.

Fortunately the man was uninjured by the incident, however, leaving a chip pan unattended for any length of time can have disastrous results as the oil can easily overheat and ignite – even the smallest distraction could lead to a fire in a matter of moments.

The fire service are also reminding people of the importance of having working smoke alarms, after it was discovered there were no smoke alarms in the property.

They say everyone should have at least one working alarm on every level of their home, and that they should be checked regularly.
