WrLx2 Littlehampton, WrL East Preston, FIO, Red Cross Support Unit
report-
West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service was called to the two-storey block of flats on River Road at 20:16 last night after a blaze broke out in the bedroom of a second floor flat. The fire started after a candle placed on a television set was left burning while the occupant was out and is thought to have melted the plastic, causing the set to catch light. Thankfully, the alarm was raised quickly after neighbours heard the smoke detector sounding and dialled 999. A fire crew from Littlehampton was on the scene within 3 minutes shortly followed by a second crew from Littlehampton and one from East Preston. Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus gained access to the flat through the second floor fire escape and quickly brought the fire under control using a hose reel and a jet. With smoke logging throughout the communal areas the remaining residents were evacuated for safety and the Red Cross' Fire Emergency Support Service were on hand to offer welfare. One resident was treated for mild smoke inhalation at the scene by paramedics but did not need hospital treatment.
