Time: 01:54:00

Address: Bolton Road, Blackburn

Incident Number: 1712006022

Two fire engines from Blackburn attended a large fire at a domestic property involving the roof space. When they arrived they requested the attendance of the Aerial Ladder Platform from Hyndburn and also two fire engines from Darwen to help bring the fire under control as it was thought the fire could be affecting joining properties. Six firefighters wore breathing apparatus and used three hose reels and a ventilation unit to extinguish the fire. The fire was contained to the one property, however firefighters used a thermal imaging camera and hose reels to check neighbouring properties for any hotspots. There was one casualty at the scene who was treated for smoke inhalation by ambulance crews.
