A PENSIONER escaped when a frying pan in his kitchen caught fire on Saturday evening.
Norman Munroe, 75, of Decoy Road, Ormesby St Margaret was busy cooking shortly after 8pm, but went away to attend to another task forgetting he had left the frying pan on the hob.
He said the pan caught fire but he was able to put it out before firefighters arrived. He believed an alert neighbour had called the fire service after seeing smoke coming from the house.
Mr Munroe, who lives with his son Ian, 46, said: “I could have been worried when the pan caught fire, but I am fairly robust. I don't panic much.”
