  • In this dramatisation the Happy Gang demonstrate what not to do in the event of a chip pan fire. They fail to contact the emergency services, collect up belongings rather than escaping and try to put out the fire with water. As a result, Nikki is put at risk from the fire and smoke. The correct action is shown by a passing boy, who phones 999, bringing the fire service to the scene.
