Shed Fire Investigated

The first of six calls reporting the fire was received by Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service at 10.45pm and fire crews from Stourport and Kidderminster were dispatched to the address.

Firefighters used one hose reel and one main jet to extinguish the blaze, and also administered oxygen therapy to a woman from one of the three properties affected. She was then checked by paramedics who also treated other residents for the effects of smoke inhalation.

Police also attended the incident.

Watch Commander Len Rees from H&WFRS confirmed that the shed and around six fence panels from three adjoining properties were destroyed in the blaze.

The fire was under control by midnight and an investigation into how it started is continuing.
