Two people rescued after explosion in Poole


Date: 22nd October, 2018

Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service has rescued two people from a collapsed building in Poole today (22 October).

Fire crews from Poole and Westbourne were called to the semi-detached property at 1.47pm after reports of an explosion.

A woman was rescued on arrival from a ground floor flat and was treated at the scene by South Western Ambulance Service paramedics; two firefighters in breathing apparatus then rescued a man from the first floor flat, and he has since been taken to hospital in Bristol by air ambulance.

Officers from Dorset Police have evacuated nearby homes as a precaution and a safety cordon remains in place.

SGN is on scene and have isolated the gas supply; however, the focus of the investigation is on gas cylinders within the property.

Sterte Road remains closed but will be reopened as soon as debris has been cleared away safely.
