9:28am 5th October 2012

Dorset Fire and Rescue are praising a quick thinking neighbour, whose actions probably saved a more serious fire breaking out on Portland.

Firefighters were called to a property in Wakeham  after a nearby resident heared a smoke alarm going off, and found a tray in an oven alight.

Crews from Portland removed the tray and ventilated the building...they said the damage could have been much worse if the neighbour hadn't responded to the smoke alarm.
