Inquest hears firefighters couldn't rescue soldiers

An inquest in Wiltshire has heard today that military firefighters were unable to rescue two sleeping soldiers from their tent, which caught fire at Camp Bastion.

Privates Rob Wood and Dean Hutchinson, who was based at Hulverton in Wiltshire, were sleeping in the Transport Troop office at the time.

The hearing was told there were delays in alerting emergency crews but they put the fire out in three minutes. It was only afterwards that they found the men were missing. The inquest continues.
