WrLx3 Crawley, FIO
Crews from Crawley were on scene within minutes and firefighters wearing breathing apparatus quickly extinguished the blaze using a hose reel. The lady was taken to hospital for a precautionary check but was released shortly afterwards.
Crawley Watch Manager, Steven Philips, said-
"Thankfully, the occupants of this house have had a lucky escape but this could have been a much more serious incident. The smoke alarms in the property were old and the batteries weren't working, so had this incident happened later at night when everyone was asleep, it could have been life-threatening. Just having smoke alarms is not enough, they need to be tested regularly.
Nowadays, tea lights and candles are often used to create a relaxing atmosphere in the home but people don't realise that there can be a danger. Because tea lights come with a flat metal base people assume it's safe to place them onto any surface without the need for a heat resistant holder. However, tea lights reach extremely high temperatures and the foil container can burn through plastic or wooden surfaces very quickly, causing a fire."

Added- 26th April 00:30am
An elderly lady has died after being rescued by firefighters from a flat fire in Crawley.
West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service was called to a fire in a ground floor flat at Deerwood Court in Ifield Drive, Crawley at 10:23pm on Easter Monday. Two fire crews from Crawley Fire Station were in attendance within 5 minutes and made the call 'persons reported' after being told by a neighbour that someone could be inside. Fire crews forced their way in through the front door but found the flat heavily smoke logged right down to floor level. The lady was found in the lounge and brought outside where firefighters tried to revive her before handing her over to paramedics.
Sadly, she was declared dead at the scene. The next of kin have been informed.
An investigation is now under way to find out how the fire started, but it is thought to be accidental.
