Kent Fire and Rescue Service was called out to a home in Folkestone Wednesday evening after a pan of oil caught fire.

Kent Fire and Rescue Service arrived at St Michael’s Road at 11pm to discover the fire had been extinguished.

Crews stayed while a positive pressure ventilation fan was used to clear smoke from the interior.

A thermal imaging camera was also used to check in case the fire had spread throughout the location.

Crews later installed three fire alarms in the property when it transpired that none had previously existed.
