Friday 29th April 2016 – 8.20am – Claire Brown.

A woman has died in a house fire in Birmingham last night.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Mears Drive, Stechford at 8.30pm (Thursday). An ambulance, a paramedic area support officer and paramedics from the Trust’s Hazardous Area Response Team (HART) attended along with the fire service.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When ambulance crews arrived they found a house well alight with fire fighters actively tackling the blaze. A woman was found inside the property but sadly it quickly became apparent that nothing could be done to save her and ambulance staff confirmed her dead on scene.

“Three other patients required assessment and treatment. One man sustained a leg injury and was taken to Heartlands Hospital. Two other patients suffered minor smoke inhalation but did not require hospital treatment.”
