Small fire broke out this morning
AROUND 20 people were evacuated from flats in Brighton Hill after a small fire broke out in the early hours of this morning.
Basingstoke firefighters were called to the scene after a smoke alarm went off in the flats opposite Asda, in Brighton Way, at 5.07am.
Watch manager Keith Jones said the fire had been caused by a man who had been cooking, who was able to extinguish the flames before the fire crews got there.
Eight firefighters attended in two fire engines and cleared the smoke using a special ventilation machine before leaving the scene at around 5.45am.
Watch manager Jones said: “Fortunately there was no damage done to the flats and it was over fairly quickly.”
