WITH the Olympics well underway, Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service (DFRS) are reminding residents to make sure they take extra care.

Distraction while cooking is one of the main causes of fire call-outs in the county so DFRS are urging locals to stay alert.

Area Manager, Bryan Bennett, said: “We’re all looking forward to watching our top athletes set the nation’s stadiums alight this summer, but if you’re cooking when your favourite sport is on, it’s important not to get caught in the heat of the moment.

“So when you’re watching Team GB blazing ahead, make sure keep your eye on the ball.”
