Fire averted by alert neighbour

Have your say

FIREFIGHTERS have praised an alert Sheffield neighbour whose prompt 999 call prevented a house fire after a clothes basket was left on the hob.

The resident of Deane Field View, Waterthorpe, heard a smoke alarm sounding next door and called the fire brigade at around 10.30am yesterday.

A crew from Mosborough arrived soon afterwards and forced their way in through the front door.
