House fire – Christchurch

Date: 19th February, 2019

Time: 22:26

Description: At 22:26 we received a call reporting a house fire in St Margaret's Avenue, Christchurch. Two crews from Christchurch fire station were mobilised to the incident and on their arrival discovered smoke to be issuing from a window which was caused by a first floor bedroom being alight. A total of four firefighters using breathing apparatus extinguished the fire using two hose reel jets. The fire caused damage to the first floor of the property and an investigation into the cause is ongoing. The ambulance service attended and one occupant of the property was taken to hospital suffering from minor burns and with smoke inhalation. The British Red Cross Emergency Response volunteers attended also this incident. They have provided all residents affected by this fire with a great deal of assistance and support in dealing with the after effects of this fire. Working smoke alarms alerted the occupants of this property to the presence of the fire. Without them, there could have been multiple seriously injured people, or worse. We advise everyone to regularly test their smoke alarms and practice good fire safety in their homes.
