Neighbour saves home from fire, Perranwell Station
A VIGILANT neighbour may have saved a Perranwell Station home by calling the fire service.
Three fire engines from Truro and Falmouth were alerted to the blaze at about 3.30pm yesterday.
A nearby neighbour had heard the fire alarm go off and called the emergency services.
Once on the scene, crew members donned breathing equipment and used a hose and thermal image camera to find the source of the flames.
The owner of the house had left the cooker on with a pan on top and then gone out.
Firefighters quickly doused the flames and ventilated the property, which was filled with smoke.
