Firefighters had to break down a door after a man switched on his oven and dozed off, sparking a fire.
Two crews were called to the flat in Castle Street, Canterbury at 9pm yesterday.
The resident, aged in his 50s, had started cooking but fell asleep without turning the oven off.
The smoke alarm failed to wake him up, but a neighbour heard it and called emergency services.
Crews had to smash down the door to get into the flat, and the man was treated for smoke inhalation.
The blaze was contained to the oven, and firefighters spent 15 minutes putting it out with a hose reel.
