Residential Fire Alarm

Barbican Road, East Looe at 12/06/2018 18:58

On receipt of an emergency call the appliance from Looe Community Fire Station was mobilised. On arrival the crew found the property to be smoke logged, they removed the occupant and used a positive pressure ventilation system to remove the smoke.

Fires happen when you least expect them, often during the night. They also spread very quickly, damaging property, killing and injuring people. A smoke alarm is a warning device that detects smoke at the earliest stages of a fire. When it detects a fire, it will make a piercing noise to alert or wake you.
