Warning with Olympic-themed fire safety campaign

Have your say

FIREFIGHTERS have launched an Olympic-themed fire safety drive.

Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service are reminding sports fans that forgetting about a switched-on oven or chip pan could end in tragedy.

Group manager Ian Cuskin said: “We’re all looking forward to watching our top athletes set the nation’s stadiums alight this summer, but if you’re cooking when your favourite sport is on, it’s important not to get caught in the heat of the moment.”
