Spring Road, Ettingshall, Wolverhampton, UK
At 2.26am on Wednesday 25 May we were called to a house fire on Spring Road, Ettingshall, Wolverhampton.
Three fire engines and a brigade response vehicle responded, crewed by firefighters from Bilston, Wolverhampton and Dudley fire stations. The first appliance arrived three minutes after being mobilised.
The incident involved a severe fire affecting both floors of the two-storey property.
Six firefighters wearing breathing apparatus extinguished the fire, using hose reel jets.
Two men had escaped prior to our arrival, one of whom jumped from the first-floor window. Both were treated at the scene by paramedics and taken to hospital.
Very sadly, one woman and three dogs were unable to escape the fire and were confirmed to have died at the scene. Our thoughts are with everyone affected by this incident.
Investigations into the cause of the fire are continuing.
Our sympathies remain with everyone affected by this incident. Our fire investigators believed the fire started accidentally and involved a damaged extension cable.
