Deans Road Severe Fire

By 21st April 2019 July 15th, 2019 No Comments

This press statement is in regards to an incident that the West Midlands Fire Service has attended in the Eastfield area of Wolverhampton in the early hours of Sunday 21st April.

At 03:02 on the 21st April, West Midlands Fire Service (WMFS) were notified of a house fire on Deans Road, Eastfield, Wolverhampton. The first fire appliance arrived at the incident after 3 minutes and 38 seconds and was presented with a severe fire on the 1st floor of the property. Despite the hard work of the firefighters at the scene, it is with great sadness that we have to report that 1 man and 1 woman have been pronounced dead at the scene. Another man was rescued from the property by the fire service and has received treatment for smoke inhalation by paramedics.

Whilst it is still too early to determine the cause of the fire, the fire service and police investigators are working together to understand the circumstances of the incident. This investigation is on-going.

Our thoughts go out to the family and friends of the deceased.

If you or someone you know has been adversely affected by this, or any other incident, support organisations are there to help.
