Spring Street, Stourbridge, UK

At 4.45pm on Monday 13 February, we were made aware of a house fire on Spring Street, Wollescote, Stourbridge.

Our first crew arrived within three minutes of being mobilised. At the height of the incident, six fire engines, a 4×4 brigade response vehicle and 32 personnel were in attendance from stations including Stourbridge, Brierley Hill, Haden Cross, Dudley, Tipton and Woodgate Valley.

Firefighters used breathing apparatus, hose reel jets and a covering jet to extinguish the fire, which extensively damaged the ground and first floors of the two-storey property.

All people were accounted for but, sadly, three dogs and a hamster were confirmed to have died. The fire is believed to have started accidentally.

Our crews returned at 06.00am and 10.00am this morning to check there were no remaining hotspots.

Our thoughts are with everyone affected by this incident.
