Firefighters called after fire at Haslingden care home

FIRE crews were called to a care home in Haslingden by a ‘concerned staff member’ after a small fire at the back of a fridge.

Two fire engines attended Haslingden Hall Care Home, in Lancaster Avenue, at around 11.20am on Saturday.

A fire service spokesman said: “It was a very small fire at the back of a fridge in a resident’s room.

“We received the call from a concerned staff member but when we arrived the fire had already been put out.

“The incident didn’t require an evacuation at the home.”

Fridges contain a small compressor that creates a lot of heat, so if you don't drag it out, clean it every now and then, the fluff of life builds up, to make a potential fire risk.

Makes you wonder what else they are missing, when it comes to cleaning the place.

Another non event leaked by the fire service to the press in an attempt to drum up public support. It doesn't work.

The fire service ring the press to let them know 'incidents of note' in order to fill column inches. I see there are two or three other non stories on here today. The public support is for the action they are taking with regards their pensions.
You're welcome. Biff.

The press ring the fire stations FACT, every day at least 3 times not the other way around. Why would the fire services headquarters be looking for support for the staff that are striking thus giving them a rather large headache? Surely they don't want support for them? Is it not a them and us mentality during industrial disputes?

I do love delusional commenters on here, especially when they get shot down by factual information
