Crews attended a kitchen fire in Hove earlier this evening believed to have been started by a deep fat fryer. An elderly male has been taken to hospital where he is being treated for burn injuries.
East Sussex Fire & Rescue Service would like to take this opportunity to remind the public about using kitchen appliances in accordance with manufacturers guidelines.
If a fire occurs get out, stay out and call the Fire Service - never attempt to deal with the fire yourself. You should never use water to attempt to put out a fire started by a deep fat fryer.
