Busted door frame...

    Was clearing out an empty rental property and sprayed some air freshener too close to the smoke detector.
    About 10 mins after I left the alarm triggered, and an hour later the fire brigade arrived and used a size 11 skeleton key to open the door.

    How best to fix this?

    The frame looks as if it has lost a bit too much meat to simply replace the architrave.

    Replace the frame, and make good. You'll get nowhere fast trying to salvage that.
