Eight appliances and crews, and three officers, were in attendance at the height of the fire.

The appliances and crews attending were from:

  • Aylesbury
  • Marlow
  • Gerrards Cross
  • Maidenhead
  • Windsor, Tinkers Lane
  • Slough
  • Hayes
  • Northamptonshire

Smoke was issuing from the first floor of a two-storey house when they arrived.

The firefighters used:

  • Six sets of breathing apparatus
  • One hose reel jet
  • Two main jets
  • A positive pressure ventilation fan

The house was around 50 per cent damaged by fire, and around 80 per cent damaged by smoke. Adjoining properties were also affected by smoke.

The incident response started to be scaled back just after 4.30pm, although firefighters are likely to remain on scene into the evening.
