House fire in Buckley

Posted 13/01/2019 09:37:04

An investigation is underway into a fire at a house in Buckley.

 

Six residents were transferred to hospital suffering from smoke inhalation following the incident.

 

Fire appliances from Buckley and Deeside were called to reports of a fire at Alyn Road, Buckley at 04.53hrs this morning (Sunday 13th January).

 

Crews used two hose reels, four sets of breathing apparatus and a thermal imaging camera to tackle the fire which was confined to a downstairs living room.

 

Bob Mason from North Wales Fire and Rescue Service said: “A woman in her 40s, a 26 year old man, three teenage boys and a teenage girl were all asleep at the time of the fire.

 

“These residents had a narrow escape as there were detectors but they had been removed (not by the Council).

 

“I would appeal to all residents to ensure they have a smoke alarm and to test alarms regularly. Smoke alarms provide an early warning sign allowing you and your family to escape safely from a fire.”

 

A joint investigation into the cause of the fire is being carried out by North Wales Fire and Rescue Service and North Wales Police.
