Firefighters are once again issuing a don’t cook drunk plea after crews from Maltby and Edlington were called to a suspected fire in Tickhill this morning (Thursday 14 March).
After being called at 0.14am, to a property on Doncaster Road, firefighters arrived to find a smoke alarm sounding but no visible signs of smoke.
They used a ladder to gain entry through a window and, when inside, found burnt cooking on a hob an the occupier asleep on the sofa.
There was limited damage to the flat and first aid was not required for the occupier – but officers say had the smoke alarm not sounded, alerting the neighbours, this could have been much worse.
The incident was dealt with by 0.44am.
