2 Dead After Cheshunt Care Home Fire

Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue were called at 5.51am today (Saturday 8 April) to a fire at a residential care home in Cadmore Lane, Cheshunt. Firefighters were faced with an extremely fierce fire, well established in the first floor and roof of the building which has since collapsed.

33 residents were rescued and firefighters worked closely with police and ambulance colleagues to evacuate them to a nearby emergency reception centre. Sadly, we can confirm that two people died in the fire and we would like to offer our sympathies to the families.

Hertfordshire County Council is working in close cooperation with Broxbourne Council and the health services to assess the needs of the evacuated residents and arrange alternative accommodation.
