East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service were called to reports of a fire at a property in Newhaven today (June 10).

Three appliances from Newhaven, Seaford and Roedean were mobilised to the address on Elphick Road at 15:13. One officer also attended.

On arrival, they found there to be a small fire in the kitchen of the property.

Firefighters used two breathing apparatus and foam to extinguish the flames.

The cause of the fire was found to be accidental due to cooking.

East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service would like to remind the public to take care when cooking.

More than half of accidental fires at home are started by cooking and many kitchen fires happen when people are not paying attention or they leave things unattended.
