Chip pan fire at Prenton flat


A MAN was taken to hospital suffering from smoke inhalation after a chip pan blaze at his Wirral home.

Firefighters were called to the first-floor flat in Singleton Avenue, Prenton, at around 11pm last night.

The man, in his 20s, was asleep on his bed but was woken by a smoke alarm.

Agreed, a mate of mine died in a house fire 5 years ago after leaving the chip pan on and falling asleep, he was only 19!

I've learnt one thing, don't make chips at night when you're pissed/tired.

Nothing wrong with chip pans, just don't leave them unattended. If your drunk its not a good idea to cook anything, especially if it means using hot oils.

Why should chip pans be banned? When my deep-fat-fryer was on the blink, I used one for a while, and it was just fine. As usual, the odd couple of useless moron's, means the PC and do-gooders brigade will be calling for them to be banned.

They key is, as bert says, not to leave them unattended, even for a second, or you are asking for trouble.

People often don't realise how dangerous they can be when they leave them unattended, and don't realise how dangerous they are in comparison to deep-fat-fryers. Also, when they go up, the amount of people who try to fight them with water despite it being common knowledge that hot oil + water should never be mixed, is absurd.
