BURNT food led to firefighters rushing out to a kitchen fire.
Firefighters were on the scene in Lords Street, Fratton, at 1.15pm yesterday, after smoke was seen issuing from a second-floor flat in the Lords Court complex.
Two appliances from Southsea fire station were sent to the fire, with four firefighters then entering the flat with a hose reel.
They also used breathing apparatus, only to find the blaze was a small kitchen fire, which started due to burnt food. They quickly extinguished it.
Firefighters left at around 2.30pm.
