Flat fire in Brighton dealt with by crews

Date : 27 May 2020

East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service are scaling back its operation after a flat fire in Brighton.

We were called at 9.48 on 27 May 2020 to a terraced property in St Georges Road.

There was smoke coming from a window on the first floor.

Crews used breathing apparatus and hose reel jets.

Fire engines from the City were supported by the control unit from Lewes.

Incident Commander Tom Walby has praised the actions of the crews:

"The aerial ladder platform was used to reach one person and three others were led to safety. 

Everyone else has been accounted for. 

Roads in the area are affected.

The cause of the fire hasn't been confirmed.

Home safety advice

  • Protect your home with working smoke alarms - install them on every level and test them every week.
  • Take extra care in the kitchen - around 50% of accidental house fires start there.
  • Check and maintain your electrical appliances - consider registering your appliance.
  • Smoking is the biggest house fire killer - out it out, right out.
