“Don’t rely on others to alert you to a fire,” is the message from fire crews who needed to force entry to a Dartford flat that didn’t have any smoke alarms to rescue a mother and child.
Crews were called to the shop fire in The Brent at 11.40pm last night and discovered smoke from the blaze had spread to the flat above and the neighbouring premises.
– Watch Manager Lee Abel
Neighbours told us they thought there maybe people inside, so we quickly entered the first floor flat and rescued a woman and child, who were asleep at the time.
“I really can’t emphasise enough the importance of having working smoke alarms fitted on each floor of your home. Don’t rely on others to alert you to a fire.
"Just three breaths of fire smoke can render you unconscious and as this incident highlights, if you are asleep already, and without a smoke alarm to wake you, your chances of escaping are significantly reduced.”
The pair were taken to hospital by ambulance suffering from the effects of breathing in smoke. Two dogs were also rescued from the flat unharmed.
The cause of the fire is being investigated but is not thought to be suspicious.
