Crew Manager Damian Keenaghan said: “Please make sure you keep everything clean when cooking, as a build-up of fat and grease can increase the likelihood of a fire. If using the grill, make sure you line the tray with foil and remove it after cooking, which will help keep the tray clean.

“Also, when cooking make sure you do not get distracted and leave cooking unattended. If the phone or the door goes, turn the heat off until you return.”

Firefighters were on the scene for approximately 25 minutes.
