Firefighters respond two kitchen fires in Banbury area this week

Firefighters from the Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue Service responded to reports of a kitchen fire yesterday, Wednesday April 29, in Twyford, Adderbury.

Fire engines from Banbury and Deddington Fire Stations responded to reports of a dishwasher on fire in Twyford.

On arrival crews were met with smoke coming from the building.

The occupier had been woken by their smoke alarms and closed the door to the kitchen on their way out of the building whilst calling the fire service.

Four Firefighters in breathing apparatus were sent in to tackle the fire.

It is believed that the fire was caused by an electrical fault in the dishwasher.

Thanks to the smoke alarms alerting the occupier and their quick actions of closing the door on the fire whilst exiting the building limited the fire to the kitchen and prevented any further damage to the building.

It was the second kitchen fire in the Banbury area this week.
