Fallen lamp causes flat blaze

On Saturday at 5:17pm firefighters from Central, Parkway and Birley Moor green watches attended an incident on Arundel Street, Sheffield.

On arrival, they found smoke issuing from a ground floor flat. Crews entered the premises and worked quickly to bring the blaze under control. Luckily, there were no injuries.

It is thought the fire was started accidentally by a lamp falling into a pile of clothes.

We would like to reiterate the importance of switching off all electrical appliances when you are not in the property, though we appreciate this isn’t always possible for electricals such as fridge/freezers etc. More information and safety advice can be found on our website here.
