Warrington Guardian: Firefighters kept busy over festive period Firefighters kept busy over festive period

FIREFIGHTERS have had a busy festive period after dealing with kitchen fires and floods over Christmas and Boxing Day. 

Crews were first called in the early hours of Wednesday after neighbours could hear a smoke alarm going off at 3.40am on Lavender Gardens, Great Sankey.

Firefighters got into the house and found a pan on the cooker and led the resident to safety before they were looked after by paramedics. 

Crews were called to a second kitchen fire in Great Sankey at 10.40am and used hose reels to tackle the cooker blaze on Hurley Close. 

A bathroom leak caused flooding at 7.40pm on Bernard Avenue in Appleton before crews were called to deal with a fire in the outbuildings at Cibo Restaurant in Lymm at 12.15am on Boxing Day. 

Two engines were then called to a second fire on Boxing Day at a house on Padgate Lane at 4.50pm. 

The fire, caused by cooking that was left unattended, was already out. 

A man was treated for smoke inhalation. 

It is not believed anyone was injured during the incidents.
