FIREFIGHTERS attended a call out in Gosport yesterday following reports of a potential house fire.
The incident occurred after a woman placed her toaster on top of a hot plate. After putting bread into the toaster, the woman turned the hot plate on by mistake.
Crew manager Tony Read said: ‘We arrived but there was no fire, just a lot of smoke which we cleared. The toaster had melted.
‘The lady self-evacuated as she had a working fire alarm. Thank goodness nobody was hurt. We urge people to check their fire alarms are functioning properly as they really do save lives.’
