Malvern Gazette: Tolladine Road reopens after airing cupboard fire Tolladine Road reopens after airing cupboard fire

A MAJOR Worcester road has now reopened following a fire in an airing cupboard but things could have been much worse if the property had not had a smoke alarm.

Fire fighters were called to Tolladine Road in Worcester at 7am today after an electrical fault caused the fire.

Fire fighters used a hose reel to dampen down clothes outside the bungalow. At the peak of the incident there were three fire engines and an ambulance although no-one needed hospital treatment.

A fan was used to clear smoke. One lane of the road was closed while the fire was brought under control with a fire fighter directing traffic. The stop message was received at 7.50am.

Jim Nokes, crew commander at blue watch, said: "The smoke alarms went off. That saved the day. I would recommend that everybody check their smoke alarms.
