Residents urged to check smoke alarms after NYD fire

Residents on the Isle of Man are being urged to make sure they have working smoke alarms in their properties. 

It’s after a call for help on New Year’s Day after a kitchen fire in Andreas. 

Firefighters were called to the property just before 2pm. 

The occupants had managed to evacuate safely – the fire was caused by kitchen equipment being left on the hob. 

The Isle of Man Fire and Rescue Service says smoke alarms, when properly installed and maintained, play a vital role in reducing fire deaths and injuries.
