Have your say

STEAM escaping from a valve in a block of retirement homes caused an automatic fire alarm to be triggered.

One crew from Fareham fire station was called to Faregrove Court, in Grove Road, Fareham.

Crews arrived to find no fire, and that the alarm had been set off by steam.

The incident happened at 4.30pm yesterday.
