On Monday evening crews from Turners Hill were standing by at Crawley Fire Station when they were sent to a domestic property fire in Pease Pottage.
It’s believed to have been caused by the hot summer sun reflecting off of a mirror onto a curtain.
The fire was dealt with rapidly using 2 BA and the crews had to use a PPV fan to clear the building of smoke.
Thankfully no one was injured.
Please be aware of your mirrors or reflective items especially during the daytime and around soft furnishings.
