May 6th. Reported Fatality in Fire overnight in Victoria Ward

I attended a nearby sheltered housing complex to offer assistance to residents affected. There had been a fatality in a fire late last night.

Report from Chief Fire Officer :-  “The two pumps from Crosby were on scene within 5 minutes of the call followed soon after by pumps from Bootle Netherton and Kirkdale. A Breathing Aparatus team from Crosby rescued an elderly male from the flat involved who was not conscious or breathing. He was declared dead soon after by Paramedics. A number of occupants of the surrounding flats were also lead to safety by our crews. The cause of the fire is under investigation “.
