What to do if a fire breaks out in your home:

- Get out. Stay out. Call 999.

- Leave the building immediately and do not re-enter.

- Do not attempt to tackle the fire yourself.

- Close the kitchen door on your way out to help prevent the fire or smoke spreading.

- Never throw water on an oil fire.

- Shout for help to alert others.

If you can’t leave the building:

- Stay low where the cleaner air is.
