Firefighters scrambled to toaster fire in Longpark Way, St Austell
FIREFIGHTERS were scrambled to a toaster fire in St Austell shortly after 11.30am today.
Eleven crew members in two fire engines attended the two-storey semi-detached house in Longpark Way after reports of smoke billowing from the kitchen.
On arrival, they found the home was full of smoke.
A Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said the blaze started when paper was left on top of a toaster.

Firefighters used two sets of breathing equipment, two hoses and a carbon dioxide fire extinguisher to tackle the flames.
The fire was removed from the property and taken outside the building before being doused.
Once the blaze was out, crew members used a fan to clear smoke from the house and fitted two smoke detectors in the building.
