A grill pan left unattended set alight in a Burnley house.
The incident happened around 12-30pm on Sunday at a house in Airdrie Crescent.
The three adult occupants of the house had got out when fire-fighters arrived.
Watch manager Gary Hargreaves said: “A neighbour had isolated the electrical supply so there was very little for us to do.
“We Would always urge people never to leave cooking appliances unattended. Luckily, there was a working fir alarm in the house.”
