Man suffers burns in flat fire

29 July 2011

A man has suffered 12% burns to his hands, arms and legs after a fire in a top floor flat on St Saviour's Road.

The fire broke out in the kitchen after a chip pan had been left unattended and 6 people including a child, were in the flat at the time.

There were no working smoke detectors in the flat and it was one of the occupants who raised the alarm. Jersey Fire and Rescue Service say had this not been the case, there could have been multiple fatalities.

The fire broke out at around 3:30 this morning (Friday 29 July). 2 firefighters put it out using a high pressured hose reel and a foam extinguisher. The fire was contained to the kitchen with smoke damage caused to the rest of the flat.

Watch Manager Richard Ryan is reminding Islanders of the importance of having a working smoke alarm and to change from using a conventional chip pan to a thermostatically controlled appliance or even oven chips.
