Firefighters were called to Knottingley after a kettle melted on an hob
Crews from Pontefract and Castleford responded to an incident at a flat on Weeland Road at 3.46pm today (Saturday).
Watch commander Michael Fox, of Pontefract Fire Station, said: “A kettle had been left on the electric hob. It melted, causing a lot of smoke.”
The crews used breathing apparatus, hose reels and fans to tackle the problem.
Mr Fox said there was quite a lot of smoke damage but the property was habitable.
