Mum and children flee blaze.

A COVENTRY woman and her two young children were forced to flee their home last night when her cooker caught fire.

The incident happened in Kensington Road, Earlsdon, at about 8pm.

Fire crews from Canley say they believe the woman had been cooking and had left the grill on by mistake.

She was alerted to the fire when the smoke alarm sounded.

Station officer Dave Kirby said the woman managed to switch off the grill and led the children to safety before firefighters arrived.

He said: "The damage was minimal and no one was hurt.

"It might have been a lot worse if she hadn't had a smoke alarm fitted in her house."
