Crews from Whitby and Lythe were called out yesterday to deal with a suspected fire in a commercial property on Stainsacre Lane.

A call was made to the fire service at 15.21, with the crews responding to what was thought to be a fryer fire.

This was a false alarm due to blowback from suppression system.

Crews used a thermal imaging camera to carry out an inspection and investigate the cause.
