A 61-year-old man was rescued by Hampshire fire crews following a fire at a house in Southampton yesterday. Crews used breathing apparatus to enter the building on Osborne Road South in Portswood and helped the man escape a severe fire in the first-floor bedroom.
He was conscious and breathing and treated for smoke inhalation at the scene. He also suffered burns and was taken to hospital by South Central Ambulance Service. Station Manager Dave Graham said: "On our arrival, a neighbour reported to us there could be someone inside the building.
"We made a quick entry and found the man in the bedroom doorway. We helped to carry him out of the building and he is very lucky to be alive." A fire investigation will take place over the weekend to ascertain the cause of the blaze.
