Cork City Fire Service highlighted the importance of having working fire alarms and closing doors in preventing the spread of fire in emergency situations using a recent, safely resolved, incident as an example.
On Wednesday evening, crews from Anglesea Street attended a fire that occurred in the hot press of a house on the southside of the city.
The hot press fire in a home in the Donnybrook area showed the importance of closing doors in the home.
Posting on the Fire Service Facebook page, the Brigade said:
The emergency services used the incident as an opportunity to remind people to check their smoke alarm regularly and keep doors closed.
