Lucky Edna backs safety campaign

By timesecholife on in All News, Latest News

A PENSIONER has admitted she is lucky to have avoided injury after a fire at her home.

Quick-thinking Edna Pattinson sprang into action when she discovered a kitchen roll left on top of a ceramic hob in flames.

The 76-year-old, who lives in Meir Heath, doused the fire with a wet tea towel and took the roll holder outside to cover it in snow before calling 999.

Relieved Edna admitted she was lucky to avoid injury and significant damage to her home.

And she is now supporting a safety campaign launched by Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service last week.

The ‘Get Out Stay Out’ initiative aims to raise awareness of the dangers of tackling a fire yourself, attempting to gather belongings or re-entering a building during a blaze.
