Bedfordshire Police Say Key To Solving Double Murder Inquiry Could Be Wheelie Bin
Seven Rescued After House Fire
Firefighters led seven adults to safety after a flat fire in Bletchley last night.
Crews from Bletchley and Great Holm were called to the incident at Serpentine Court at 10.15pm. The fire spread to the flat after a washing machine outside it was set on fire.
Watch Manager Lee Bloom from Great Holm Fire Station said: "When we arrived, a number of people had already left their flats.
"For their own safety, seven adults in flats above the one where the fire was remained where they were until we had put out the fire and cleared away the smoke. We then led them down the stairs."
Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used a hose reel to put out the fire and a large fan to clear the smoke.
The fire spread into the flat after the heat from the washing machine fire broke a window. The flat was badly damaged by fire, heat and smoke.
Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service and Thames Valley Police are investigating the cause.
