FIREFIGHTERS were called to a high-rise after a smoke alarm went off.
Crews from Southsea fire station went to Handsworth House in Quinton Close at 12.30pm on Saturday, with nearby stations also called in.
But it turned out a pie had burned in an oven so firefighters cancelled the other crews.
There was no damage to the flat.
A Southsea firefighter said: ‘We attended the fire to find out that it was caused by a pie left in the oven, and subsequently called off the other fire teams.’
Nobody was injured.
