Chichester Close, Runcorn

One fire engine from Runcorn and one from Widnes


 Firefighters were called to a report of a kitchen fire on Chichester Close. The crews, from Runcorn and Widnes, in breathing apparatus ensured everyone from the affected house, along with those from the neighbouring property due to the spread of smoke, were out of the properties as they tackled the fire. 

A covering jet was used to fight the fire and the gas and electricity supplies were isolated. The roof space in both properties were checked to ensure there was no fire spread. A high pressure fan was used to clear smoke from the affected property and it was confirmed that there was no sign of fire in smoke in the adjoining house.

Following a fire investigation the fire is believed to have been caused by an electric scooter on charge.

Some of the occupants were taken to hospital  by North West Ambulance.
