Merthyr Tydfil man rescued from chip pan blaze

  • 3-31-2011

Firefighters said a man had a narrow escape when he had to be rescued from a blaze at his home in Merthyr Tydfil.

Emergency services were called to the Heolgerrig area just before 0300 BST by neighbours who heard a smoke alarm going off.

Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus searched the property and found him in an upstairs bedroom.

A South Wales Fire and Rescue Service spokeswoman said the fire was caused by a chip pan left unattended on a cooker.

"The fire service advise that you do not cook before going to bed and that working smoke alarms save lives," she said.
