TWO fire engines were called to a smoke alarm triggered by unattended cooking.

The occupier of the flat in Penrose Close, Banbury, and a neighbour were treated for possible smoke inhalation on Monday afternoon.

Crews used fans to clear the remaining smoke from the flat.

Crew manager Piper said: “This incident highlights the dangers of leaving cooking unattended, and the benefits of having a working smoke alarm.

“Ensure you have a working smoke alarm, as a smoke alarm will give an immediate warning of a fire and allow you to escape before the fire grows. Have a fire plan so everyone in your household knows what to do when a smoke alarm goes off.”
