The owner of the property found a smoke filled living room when alarm went off
Smoke alarms save lives.
That's the message from Isle of Man Fire and Rescue after a house fire at Victoria Crescent in Douglas yesterday afternoon.
The owner of the property found a smoke filled living room after being alerted by a sounding smoke alarm.
Crews wearing breathing apparatus extinguished a small fire that was contained within a storage cupboard.
Investigations are continuing to determine the cause of the fire.
But the service say "smoke alarms that are properly installed and maintained play a vital role in reducing fire deaths and injuries, giving you time to get out".
