Young woman treated after fire

By KentOnline reporter

Emergency crews were called out when cooking oil caught fire.

A woman in her early 20s was treated for smoke inhalation after the incident in Giles Lane, Canterbury, this afternoon.

It is believed she had left a small amount of oil in a pan and was alerted by smoke alarms in the property.

She returned to the room and put a pan of water over the small blaze.

Firefighters were called at 1.16pm, arriving on the scene within minutes.

However, they found the fire in the third-floor kitchen was out.

They used a special fan to clear smoke from the property.

The fire caused the electrics to trip, which isolated the heat source.

The woman was given a precautionary check by South East Coast Ambulance Service but was not taken to hospital.
