Fire damages apartment
An apartment suffered severe heat and smoke damage after a fire broke out this morning.
The fire broke out in the kitchen and emergency despatchers were alerted to the blaze by the occupant of the apartment.
The occupant told a dispatcher: “I heard popping sounds coming from the kitchen and now there is smoke coming from around the doorway.”
Two fire crews tackled the blaze, which broke out about 8am this morning in Rosemont Avenue, Pembroke.
No one was injured as a result of the fire.
Lieutenant Russann Francis of the Bermuda Fire and Rescue Service, said: “On arrival we found heavy smoke emitting from the kitchen of the lower level apartment.”
The fire service has launched an investigation into the cause of the fire.
Lieutenant Francis said: “We would like to take this opportunity to remind the public that once it is safe, to close all doors of any room where smoke or fire is discovered.”
