oily pan fire

OIL in a pan sparked a small fire in Leigh.

A woman had accidentally switched on the oven instead of a grill and a pan containing oil set alight in Willow Crescent, Westleigh, at 10pm on Monday.

The woman put the fire out and crews from Leigh attended.

Watch Commander Jim Bridge said: “We warn people never to leave food cooking unattended.

“Luckily there was no real damage.”
