Sad to report a house fire occurred early this morning (Sunday, 4th October 2015) in Vernon Avenue, central Brownhills.
At around 6am West Midlands Fire Service attended the incident, in which a man suffered burns to his hands and for the effects of smoke inhalation. He was treated at the scene, and was later taken to hospital.
My sympathies to the gentleman concerned, and thanks to the emergency services.
There’s a report at the Express & Star here.
