Fire on ground floor of two-storey house
The Crescent, Princes Risborough
Two appliances and crews from High Wycombe, one from Aylesbury and four officers attended. Sadly, firefighters discovered the body of a woman. They used two hose reels, two sets of breathing apparatus, a fan and a thermal imaging camera. The ground floor was 50 per cent damaged by fire and severely smoke-damaged. The neighbouring house was 20 per cent damaged by smoke.
Note: Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service was not immediately able to confirm that there had been a fatality. It has to wait until Thames Valley Police have informed next of kin and completed their initial investigations into a death before releasing this information to the public. It's one of the ways the emergency services show their respect to people who have lost their lives. Our thoughts are with family, friends and the local community.
