Two fire engines were sent to a Hethersett home this afternoon to deal with gas leaking from a freezer.

Fire crews from Earlham and Hethersett arrived at a house in Campion Way at 12.19pm to move the freezer outside and ventilate the property.

Freezer gas is an odourless, colourless and non-flammable liquid group of chemicals which is non-toxic to humans, but Inhaling from a leak can be dangerous as it is heavier than air and can settle in the lungs.

The crews left the house at 12.30pm.

  • What? Really was this nessesary? Why did this person dial 999 and why didn't they just move it outside? did it really justify 2 crews? Was there a cat around the house or a pigeon on top? Some people!

  • It might have been an old person who couldn't move a freezer? And they might not have known that the gas wasn't harmful? I'm sure the fire service would have said they weren't going if they didn't need to. Everything isn't a conspiracy or a case of incompetency.
