Langstone Road, Birmingham, UK

Shortly before 12.35pm on Wednesday (16 August), we responded to a house fire on Langstone Road, in the Warstock area of Birmingham.

Three fire engines and a 4×4 brigade response vehicle attended, crewed by firefighters from Billesley, Kings Norton and Solihull Fire Stations.

The first vehicle arrived within three minutes of being mobilised. A hydraulic aerial platform from Highgate was also sent to the scene.

This was a fire in a first-floor bedroom of a two-storey semi-detached house. The fire spread through the roof and affected the property next-door.

Six firefighters wearing breathing apparatus have extinguished the fire, which was confirmed to be out at 1.20pm. All people have been accounted for.

We remain at the scene damping down.
