People are being warned about the dangers of leaving candles and incense unattended after a house fire in Spalding this afternoon.
It happened in Severn Road where a fire broke out at about 3.40pm, leaving damage to an incense holder, coaster and table.
A ventilating fan was used to remove fumes from the living room which suffered some light smoke damage
A Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue spokesman said: “Breathing apparatus was used by crews as a precaution and a positive pressure ventilation fan was used to ventilate the house.
“The cause of the fire was incense left unattended on a flammable service and we would advise householders never to leave burning incense or candles unattended.”
