PostSubject: Templestowe dad in hospital after Mother's Day breakfast goes wrong   May 10th 2009, 11:52 am

http://www.news.com.au/story/0,23599,25456681-2,00.html

A MUM waiting for her Mother's Day breakfast in bed this morning was unaware her two children were setting the kitchen on fire.

The Lower Templestowe mother heard noise coming from the kitchen where her two daughters were attempting to cook breakfast but dismissed it as bickering between the pair.

But disaster struck as the fire took hold with the girls’ father receiving 2nd degree burns to his hands as he tried to put out the flames.

Templestowe station officer Rod Lawler said fire fighters arrived at the John St house shortly after 8.15am and quickly put out the blaze, estaimated to have caused $15,000 damage.

He said the girls had been cooking in a flash pan which appeared to have fired up setting the cupboards alight.

Mr Lawler said the accident served as a reminder to families to have working smoke alarms and fire blankets in the home.

“It is a timely reminder to make sure all the alarms are working – this family had three but they weren’t functioning,” he said.

“The mum heard the commotion but thought they were fighting, instead they were yelling ‘fire’.”

The 56-year-old father was taken to Austin hospital with 2nd degree burns to his hands, and the girls were treated for minor smoke inhalation.

Aww how awful! I hope Dad is alright. Poor girls, how scary!

Definitely a very good reminder to check smoke alarms and fire blankets as well as fire extinguishers.
