Woman rescued from smoke filled house

Highbridge Road, Aylesbury

One appliance and crew from Aylesbury attended.

An unattended pan of oil, left on a hob, had caused smoke logging to the house and activated smoke alarms. One woman was in the house but had fallen and was unable to get up.

The firefighters rescued the woman, helping her into clean air, and then treated her for the effects of breathing in smoke.

The firefighters used a thermal imaging camera, an immediate emergency care pack, and natural ventilation to clear the smoke from the house.
