Dad alerted to kitchen fire thanks to a smoke alarm
A Macclesfield dad is warning people of the dangers of using chip pans and the benefits of having a working smoke alarm after a small fire in his kitchen.
30-year-old Zack Stewart was upstairs at his home in Stoneleigh Close when he heard a smoke alarm sounding, just after 6pm on Thursday July 2.
His partner Emma Gough had started cooking tea and had put the chip pan on but became distracted outside.
Thankfully because of the smoke alarm there is only a bit of damage to the extractor fan and a cupboard door, plus there’s some smoke damage, but it could have been much worse.

The Fire Fighters Charity
Every year the The Fire Fighters Charity needs £10m to operate its services in support of the entire UK fire services community. This year, however, the coronavirus pandemic has brought its traditional fundraising to a halt, with the cancellation or postponement of countless events and challenges, losing the Charity £200,000 per month.
When the Charity made an appeal for help to its fire and rescue service family during the pandemic, staff from across the Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service leapt instantly to its aid.
Since the start of the Coronavirus pandemic nearly £20,000 has been raised in Cheshire alone, which is a staggering amount, grown through dedication and sheer determination to support this great cause.
