Firefighters from Shanklin, Ryde, and Sandown have responded to reports of a fire in a property in Shanklin this afternoon (Friday).

3 appliances from the Hampshire & Isle of Wight Fire and Rescue Service were mobilised to the semi-detached property on Green Lane after smoke appeared to be emanating from it.

The crew from Shanklin quickly arrived on the scene and carried out an initial assessment of the incident, revealing that the smoke had been caused by food being left on the stove.
