A 21-YEAR-OLD woman had to call 999 after she set her oven on fire while cooking burgers.

Two fire engines from Bolton Central and Bolton North stations were called out to the incident in Jethro Street, Tonge Fold, after sparks from the fat in the beefburgers set the oven on fire.

The fire was out when firefighters arrived, but they inspected the cooker and carried out a fire safety check.
