A fire in the kitchen of a Grantham house was put out with kitchen towels.

A Grantham fire crew attended the house in Alma Park Road at 5.30pm yesterday but the fire had already been extinguished.

Firefighters removed a chip pan outside and carried out an inspection. A spokesman for Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue said the cause of the fire was cooking left unattended on a hob.
