Candle warning issued after woman rescued from fire in Worthing
Firefighters are urging people to take extra care with candles after a disabled woman was rescued from a fire in her Worthing flat this morning.
West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service was called to the converted ground floor flat on Clifton Road at 9.09 this morning when the occupier, a wheelchair user in her 40s, accidentally knocked a scented candle off her bedside table and set light to her bedroom floor.
Although the woman managed to raise the alarm herself, the Fire & Rescue Service had also previously carried out a Home Fire Safety Check at the property, and the occupier was protected by a specialist 'Firelink' smoke detector. This meant that an operator at a 24-hr monitoring centre was automatically alerted to the fire and also placed a call to the Fire Service. Sussex Control Centre operators stayed on the phone with the lady and gave her fire survival guidance while firefighters were dispatched to the scene.
A fire crew from Worthing were in attendance 9 minutes later and, assisted by South East Coast Ambulance personnel, carried the lady out to fresh air and safety. She was subsequently taken to hospital suffering from mild smoke inhalation. The fire was put out using a CO2 extinguisher and the property ventilated.
Reducing the time between a fire starting in a vulnerable person's home and a 999 call being made to the fire service is crucial. A community Fire Link smoke detector is an effective way of doing that. The Fire service can fit linked smoke detectors, where appropriate, as part of a Home Fire Safety Check service.

Police investigate attacks on two women in Ferring
Police are investigating two separate attacks on women in Ferring today which may have been carried out by the same youth.
The first happened shortly before 3pm when a 19-year-old woman was accosted as she emerged from ladies toilets at Ferring village hall. A hand was placed over her mouth and she was told not to scream, but she managed to break free and run to a nearby shop to raise the alarm.
Meanwhile, less than 10 minutes later in nearby Meadow Way, a 36-year-old woman was approached by a teenage boy who asked for help to fetch his injured dog. They drove in her van a short distance to Onslow Drive but there was no dog. The youth then made two attempts to grab the woman, who locked herself in her van. The youth fled down a nearby footpath.
Both victims described their assailant as white, around 5'7" tall and in his teens. He was said to have headphones slung around his neck.
Police are asking for any witnesses or anyone with other relevant information to come forward.

Incident: FIRE
involving 1st floor flat above commercial premises - 4BA, 2HR and 1 Jet used to extinguish - flat left severely damaged by fire and smoke - no reported injuries - accidental ignition - WrLx3 Worthing
SEE ABOVE
FIRE SERVICE report - Ref: PR7139
Firefighters have stressed the importance of having a working smoke alarm after a flat in Worthing was left severely damaged by fire this morning.
West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service was called to the first floor flat on Findon Road at 8.41 this morning after smoke was seen pouring from the window and the alarm was raised.
Crews from Worthing were at the scene within 8 minutes of the 999 call and immediately established that nobody was in the property. On entering the flat, which did not have a working smoke detector, firefighters wearing breathing apparatus were confronted with heavily smoke-logged conditions. The crews worked quickly to locate the blaze and extinguish it using hose reels and a covering jet but the flat was left badly damaged by fire and smoke.
Following an investigation, officers believe the fire to have started accidentally when an electric hob was knocked on and ignited a cardboard box which had been placed on the hob top.
Worthing Watch Commander, Darren Wickings, who was in charge at the incident said afterwards- "This fire has caused considerable damage to the flat and highlights, once again, the importance of having a working smoke alarm. Had the property been protected by a working smoke detector, it's likely that the alarm would have been raised earlier. The occupiers were out at the time so thankfully nobody was injured on this occasion. However, if the fire had occurred at night when the occupiers were asleep, it would have been a very different matter. People assume that the smell of smoke wakes you up, it doesn't, unfortunately it kills you."
