Fire scare at Rocky home

FIREFIGHTERS were called out to a Farm St home, Rockhampton, last night after a report of smoke coming from the residence.

A Fire and Rescue spokeswoman said they received two 000 calls from neighbours of the property and responded at 8.53pm.

The occupant refused entry to the firefighters initially, but they were then let in and the kitchen fire was extinguished by 8.56pm.

The spokeswoman said the smoke was caused by a pot being left on the stove.
