FIRE chiefs have issued a warning to householders after a man was injured tackling a blaze in his Southampton home.

He received burns to his head and face while putting out a chip pan fire in his top floor flat in Cranbury Avenue.

A woman in the property was also taken to hospital suffering from smoke inhalation.

One of the firefighters called to the scene said: “Our message to householders in situations like this is get out, stay out – and call us out.”

The injured man is thought to have used a damp tea towel to smother the fire, which left the second floor flat severely smoke-logged.
