Bedroom fire thought to be caused by faulty charger
Incident details
A faulty charger is thought to be the cause of a fire in a bedroom in Roper Close, Park Wood, Gillingham, that led to a teenage girl needing an ambulance. Firefighters were called to the two-storey house after a smoke detector raised the alarm. Crews wearing breathing apparatus tackled a fire on the first floor using a hose reel and a main jet. All occupants were accounted for and a teenage girl was given oxygen therapy before being passed to the care of an ambulance crew. Crews used thermal imaging cameras to check the fire was completely out and a positive pressure ventilation fan to clear smoke from the property. A Red Cross support vehicle also attended the scene to offer assistance to the occupants following the fire.
