Elderly residents homeless after boiler fire damage

A number of elderly residents have had to leave their homes after a boiler fire ravaged their warden-controlled complex in Trowbridge last night (Saturday 23 November). No one was injured in the blaze on Weaver Road, but a dog has been found dead.

The fire began in one bungalow and spread into the roof space and then to two other bungalows. Six fire crews were needed to extinguish it. The residents whose homes were affected are reportedly now staying with relatives.
