Pot left on stove causes fire brigade call-out


Tauranga firefighters were called to what was believed a house fire on Otumoetai Rd this afternoon.


A spokesperson said the female occupant was cooking her dinner and had left the pot on the lowest setting on the stove then went out to visit a friend.


The pot boiled dry, causing the house to fill with smoke.


A visitor noticed that the fire alarm was going off and called the firebrigade.


When they arrived, firefighters took the pot off the stove and ventilated the house.
