Emergency services treated an elderly man for smoke inhalation following a microwave fire.
West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service was called to the maisonette in Durham Close, Tilgate, at 9.11pm yesterday (Wednesday February 11).
A spokesman said the man was given oxygen and checked by paramedics.
His first floor home was filled with smoke caused by cooking in his microwave.
An operator at a monitoring centre linked to the man’s Careline System fire alarm called firefighters to the scene.
The two crews who attended left at 9.35pm.
