The post mortem revealed the most likely causes of death to be smoke inhalation or carbon monoxide poisoning.

It has been reported in blackpoolgazette.co.uk that 42 year old Patrick Sean Taylor is believed to have died following a chip pan fire in his home. Concerns were raised when neighbours claimed they had not seen him for several days. Police officers turned up to the property and upon receiving no response, entered to find the man on the floor behind the kitchen door. It is believed there was previously a chip pan fire at the house which may have burned itself out, explaining why the incident was not reported. The post mortem revealed the most likely causes of death to be smoke inhalation or carbon monoxide poisoning.

“This incident shows the importance of gas safety awareness. Because carbon monoxide is tasteless and odourless it often goes undetected, however this can lead to death or long term health problems. One thing to look out for around the home is dark staining on or around appliances. These should also be checked at least once a year by a Gas Safe Registered engineer, such as those provided by We Fix Now.”
