FIREFIGHTERS extinguished a blaze in a range oven in Tenbury Wells yesterday morning.
The crew from Tenbury Wells attended around 9am after a smoke detector was triggered.
When they got to the property in Menith Wood they found a tea towel had caught alight in the oven.
They removed it and put it out.
The incident has prompted Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service to issue a warning about people having cloths in ovens or around them and hobs as they can lead to blazes.
