A man has died and two other people required treatment from ambulance staff following a house fire last night.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Belmont Road in Malvern just before 9.50pm and sent two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer and a MERIT trauma doctor to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “A man was rescued from the house by the fire service and found to be in cardiac arrest.

“CPR began immediately and ambulance staff also administered advanced life support.

“However, despite everyone’s best efforts, it unfortunately became apparent that nothing could be done to save him and he was confirmed dead at the scene.

“A man from a neighbouring property, believed to be in his 50s, was treated for minor smoke inhalation whilst a third man found nearby, believed to be in his 40s, was treated for a minor head injury. Both were able to be discharged on scene.”
