Firefighters Rescue Man From House Fire

Posted: 28/08/2007 11:07:45

Full time and retained firefighters from Falmouth rescued a man from a fire in his home on Wednesday night.

Two crews from Falmouth and one crew from Camborne quickly responded to the emergency call made at 8.45pm. Both fire engines from Falmouth were at the scene within twelve minutes.

Divisional Officer Kevin Thomas said: "When the firefighters arrived at the property the fire was developing on the second floor. Wearing breathing apparatus they broke down the front door and made their way through the smoke filled house to search for the person we had been told was trapped inside"

He cont: "A second crew of firefighters put a ladder up outside of the house and reached the casualty through an upstairs window. They managed to keep him stable until the crew inside the building reached him and carried him to safety"

The fire was quickly extinguished using a jet of water. The fire is being treated as suspicious following a full fire investigation. The police are now dealing with the incident.
