Four fire engines attended to a 'severe' house fire on Monday night in Hereford.
At approximately 10:55pm last night Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue (HWFRS) was called to reports of a fire at a detached property in Easton Bishop.
Upon arrival the fire crews were faced with a severe house fire, which initially started in the garage and rapidly spread to the rest of the house. Firefighters tackled the fire throughout the night using hose reel jets and compressed air foam.
Thankfully the occupants were able to safely evacuate the property prior to our arrival and were given precautionary checks by paramedics at the scene.
Incidents such as this highlight the importance of having an escape plan and working smoke alarms.
