A MAN has been treated for the effects of smoke inhalation after a serious fire broke out in a house in Worcester this afternoon (Tuesday).
Three fire crews were called to Dove Close just before 1.30pm where they tackled a severe blaze on the ground floor of a property.
Two firefighters wearing breathing apparatus went inside the house and two hose reels were used to put out the fire.
Station Commander Bob Sproat said: “The firefighters worked quickly and professionally to bring the fire under control and to stop it spreading through the house. Thankfully the fire was contained to the ground floor.”
A man was treated by paramedics at the scene but he was not taken to hospital.
Following the fire, crews visited neighbouring properties to talk to residents about fire safety in the home.
A fire investigation into the cause of the blaze is now underway.
