Mum And Baby Escape Fire In Poole
At 11am on 26th Nov, crews from Poole, Redhill Park and Westbourne (approx 15 firefighters) were called to a fire in Oakdale Road, Poole.
It had broken out on the ground floor, and was quickly put out by firecrews.
Station Manager Clem Stanley said:
"We believe the cause of this fire to have been a candle left on a windowsill, this then set light to the curtains.
"The resident was able to escape the flat with her young baby and these quick actions undoubtedly saved their lives.
"We always remind the public to get out, stay out and call 999 which is exactly what happened in this case.
"If the occupier had also had the opportunity to close the internal doors, the damage in the flat would have been greatly reduced.
"Candles can be really nice to ignite indoors but they should never be left unattended, and always kept away from flammable
"Finally, if you are going to bed or leaving the house please don't forget to make sure they are fully extinguished."
The flat had significant smoke damage and the bedroom where the fire started has been badly damaged too. She and her baby were taken to hospital as a precautionary measure.
