Three children rescued by firefighters from Keynsham flat fire

Tintagel Close, Keynsham

Crews responded after a number of calls were made to report a bedroom fire on the first floor of a four storey building.

Three children, a 13 year old female, five year old male and three year old female were rescued by fire crews and conveyed to hospital.

Three adults from neighbouring flats were treated at the scene for smoke inhalation.

Firefighters in breathing apparatus used one 45mm jet to tackle the fire and a ventilation fan was used to clear the flat and neighbouring flats of smoke.

The cause of the fire is being investigated.

Five crews attended the incident from Hicks Gate, Kingswood and Temple. The red cross emergency unit also attended.
