Three children saved from Brighton fire
Police Press Release
Thursday 28 June 2012
ref- PR39550 /2012
Three children were rescued from a flat in Brighton after fire broke out.
Emergency services were called to the top floor flat in Clarence Square, Brighton, at 9.10pm on Thursday 28 June after reports of a fire and people being trapped. Police officers went into the building to attempt to rescue the occupants but were unable to do so because of the effects of smoke inhalation. Firefighters went into the flat and brought out the three occupants, a boy aged four, and a girl and boy, both aged 14.
The three children and five police officers, a Sergeant and four Constables, were treated at Royal Sussex County Hospital for the effects of smoke inhalation. The police officers were later discharged.
The cause of the fire, which was confined to the flat, has being investigated and is not being treated as suspicious. It is believed it may have started accidentally.
The 14-year old girl is a relative of the four-year old boy, who lives at the flat with his parents, and she was looking after him while his parents were out. They both came to the hospital to be re-united with their son.
Inspector Richard Delacour said: "Police and firefighters worked successfully together to ensure that the three were brought to safety and that nobody else was endangered."
It is understood the children may have remained at the hospital overnight but police have received no update on this aspect of the incident. There was no suggestion overnight that they were in life threatening conditions.
