Flat fire in Walsall Wood yesterday evening

Sad to report a flat fire occurred yesterday evening (Saturday, 9th January 2016) – apparently in King Street, Walsall Wood.

West Midlands Fire Service were on the scene of the fire within minutes, and crews from Aldridge and Walsall rescued a man. The fire is believed to have been caused by a cigarette.

My sympathies to the chap concerned, and thanks to West Midlands Fire Service for keeping us safe.

If you have any more information, I’d welcome it please: BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com, or comment here. Please be sensitive in any comments. Cheers.

Looks like the fire was in King Street – note the stone eagle on the gatepost and the gates. Imagery from Google Streetview.
