A SECURITY guard nearly had his chips when cooking in his trailer during the night.

He was frying chips and went to answer his mobile phone at Pinky’s car-wash and tyre depot in Salmon Lane in Limehouse, in London’s East End, when his supper caught fire.

A passer-by raised the alarm at 11.15pm last night when the smoke billowed across the street.

Four fire crews arrived to tackle the blaze next to the Prince Regent pub.
