Firefighters tackled a chip pan fire at a flat in Cambridge last night (Wednesday, November 7).

Two crews from Cambridge were called to the flat on Milton Road shortly before 10pm.

They found a chip pan on fire in the kitchen of the property.

Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used a CO2 extinguisher, hose reel and jet to the blaze out.

They then used a positive pressure ventilation fan to clear the smoke.

Crews returned to their station by 11.05pm. The cause of the fire was accidental.

Firefighters also tackled a fire in a bin chute at a property on Cockerell Road, Cambridge, at 7.02pm.

They used one hose reel to extinguish the fire before returning to their station by 7.45pm.
