A FIRE broke out on the hob in a flat in Shoreham at just after 11pm last night.
Firefighters were called to the property at Arundel Court in Arundel Close, in response to an automatic fire alarm.
When they arrived at the scene, there was no answer at the door.
Unsure whether anyone was still inside, the crews forced entry only to find no one was home.
One engine from Worthing and two from Hove attended the fire.
No one was injured.
