Three fire engines were called to Brixton on Saturday following reports of a kitchen fire in a house. 

One fire engine from Greenbank, one from Plymstock and one from Camels Head were mobilised to reports of a fire at Steer Point, Brixton, on Saturday, 22 May. 

On arrival, crews confirmed a small fire involving "washing on the hob which was removed to outside". Crews used hoses and breathing apparatus to extinguish the fire, before using a ventilation fan to clear the smoke and a thermal imaging camera to check for hotspots. 

A spokesperson for Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service said: "The property suffered 100% smoke damage."

There were no injuries.
