First published in News

Firefighters were called after a romantically-inclined resident fell asleep with his candle still burning.

Crews from Preston Circus Fire Station were called to The Orchards sheltered housing in Moulsecoomb Way, Brighton, at 4.45am this morning after the candle burnt down and set fire to the table.

Fortunately the resident was able to put out the fire by himself before firefighters arrived.
