Fire service: "Check your ovens and pans are clean"

CLEAN out your ovens and grill pans – that’s the message from South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue.

The warning comes after an incident at a house on Roberts Road, Wingfield, on Saturday when heat from a frying pan ignitied fat and grease in a grill pan tray which filled the kitchen with smoke.
